LYMAN ALLYN ART MUSEUM SHOWCASES WORK BY WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHERS
NEW LONDON – The Lyman Allyn Art Museum is showcasing its growing photography collection in an upcoming exhibition, Unbeatable Women: Power and Innovation in the Work of Women Photographers, which opens to the public on Saturday, Feb. 26. The exhibition examines women’s many important contributions to modern and contemporary photography and presents compelling images that address female innovation, power and identity. The exhibition will be on view through June 19.
Curated in partnership with Connecticut College students, the show features additional images augmented by select loans. The show’s title, “Unbeatable Women” derives from photojournalist Donna Ferrato and her powerful work fighting domestic abuse. In addition to Ferrato’s images, the exhibition includes work by photographers such as Cindy Sherman, Carrie Mae Weems and Shirin Neshat, and other regional artists.
