Boise Art Museum Celebrates Women on The World Stage
As we have seen all over social media platforms since the beginning of the month we know that March is Women’s History Month. Today also celebrates International Womens’ Day and there are so many different ways we can honor the inspiring women in our lives.
One way the local community here in Boise is celebrating the month is through their role in the arts. For the entire month, Boise Art Museum is taking part in the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ #5WomenArtists Campaign.
The National Museum of Women in the Arts is the only museum in the world dedicated to honoring women’s roles through its exhibitions and programs.
Boise Art Museum will feature a new woman artist‘s work each Monday through the month of March. The Treasure Valley is growing fast and so has Boise's entertainment, dining, and beverage scene so there’s no surprise that our arts and culture are going to grow right along with it.
