With the help of visual aids, Quinn will delve into some important women in the history of art and drill down on one story in particular that gives a sense of how it is women artists. She’ll participate in Q&A and have books available for purchase and signing.
Quinn’s book centers on the idea that major female artists have historically been excluded from the mainstream art canon. Aligned with the resurgence of feminism in pop culture, Broad Strokes offers a corrective to that omission.
The 411: San Francisco artist and author Bridget Quinn brings her book Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art And Made History (In That Order) to the O’Hanlon Center for the Arts, 616 Throckmorton Ave., on Saturday, July 21 at 7pm. $10.
