WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH

Some ways to celebrate talented, brave women throughout NYC for women's history month and all year long.

Exhibits

Ethel Reed: I Am My Own Property

Poster House
Closes Aug 21

See striking decorative advertisements for literary publications by Ethel Reed, who shot to fame in 1895 as a fresh talent in the poster world, became the darling of the international press in a matter of months, and then disappeared from public life by 1898. Look for hints of the struggles of being a female artist in the male-dominated art world of the late 19th century in colorful, stylized figures.
