Among the artists included in the exhibition are photographers Laurie Simmons and Donna Ferrato, painter Miriam Shapiro, and painters and sculptors Linda Stein and Ruby Sky Stiler. The majority of artworks in the exhibition will come from the museum’s collection, and will include many recent acquisitions, with select loans coming from the Westport Public Art Collection (WestPAC) and private collections.

Curated by Fairfield University student Phoebe Charpentier ’23.


About Women's Rights are Human Rights:

This exhibition features posters created by both men and women worldwide to celebrate and acknowledge the vital role that all citizens play in protecting and promoting human rights while challenging gender inequality and stereotypes, advancing reproductive and sexual rights, protecting women and girls against brutality, and promoting women’s empowerment, education, and participation in society. The posters argue for the empowerment of women, the achievement of equality between women and men, and the elimination of discrimination against women and girls.

Organized and curated by Elizabeth Resnick, Professor Emerita, Graphic Design, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston. Co-curated by Fairfield University faculty Rachelle Brunn-Bevel, PhD, Elizabeth Hohl, PhD, Johanna Garvey, PhD, and Anna Lawrence, PhD in collaboration with museum staff.
