Woman As…Exploring Gender and Representation in the Permanent Collection May 25–September 18, 2021 Art is often reliant on perception and perspective: how something is portrayed and how we as the viewer respond to it. Through this exhibition, Graduate Research Assistant Hannah Ashburn investigates how women are seen and represented in artwork from the Great Plains Art Museum’s permanent collection. Arranged in a series of vignettes, Woman As… focuses on the depiction of women in various contexts, framing them as worker, bearers of culture, sources of life, and much more. The selected artworks were produced both by artists who identify as women and by those that do not to highlight different perspectives and understandings.
