Paint Like a Girl is a hypothetical exhibition developed and designed during my third semester at University of the Arts. This is an object-rich, interactive exhibition that unfolds the story and significance of The Philadelphia Ten, within the context of the history of Philadelphia’s diverse and prestigious art schools.
The Philadelphia Ten were one of the first women’s artist clubs in America they played a significant role in making a space for women in the art world. The club operated from 1917 to 1945, and all of the women attended either Moore College of Art & Design or Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. 2017 marks the 100th year anniversary of their first of 65 group exhibitions, featuring over 200 paintings and sculptures.
