Thursday March 5th, in observance of International Women’s Day, LadyDrinks hosted one of its trademark event in Houston: A private tour of the Museum of Fine Arts, telling the stories of women-only artists. We have hosted this tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Louvre in Paris, The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC, The Art Institute of Chicago, and the San Diego Museum of Art.
LadyDrinks member Hina Patel led the group and MFAH Senior docent Marianne van Arkel-Priest led the talk called “Female Factor.” She discussed the attitude towards women, their bodies, their sexuality and the evaluation of their work, all indicators for why it has been so hard for women to be accepted as professional artists. Afterwards, all the ladies headed to the MFA Cafe to introduce themselves and share what resonated from the tour with the group.
Women artists and how we each still struggle to be seen.
How women are each other’s worst critics
Sexuality and gender equality is still prevalent today.
What can each of us do to help each other.
LADYDRINKS is a platform to connect professional women and be a resource to one another..
