Drawn to Purpose: American Women Illustrators and Cartoonists

This Week
Daily, Now - October 20, 2018
From: 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM

Features the rich collections of the Library of Congress and brings to light remarkable but little-known contributions made by North American women to the art forms of illustration and cartooning. Spanning the late 1800s to the present, the exhibition highlights the gradual broadening in both the private and public spheres of women’s roles and interests, and demonstrates that women once constrained by social conditions and convention, have gained immense new opportunities for self-expression and discovery.
