The Washington Women's Art Center, headquartered at 1821 Q Street, NW, and later at the Lansburgh Cultural Center, was created in 1975 as a non-profit organization that provided professional support and opportunities for women in the arts. Throughout its history, the WWAC would also sponsor speakers, produce literary and visual arts journals, and collaborate with other organizations to raise the profile of women artists in the Washington D.C. area and around the country.
During the summer of 2018, the AU Museum will host an exhibition featuring the art of former WWAC members and exhibitors. Were you a member of the WWAC? Do you know artists that exhibited at the center or have memories from good times at the center? If so, we want to hear from you!
Please visit our WWAC Facebook page to share photos and stories about the center, its members, and exhibitions and programs.
