Beyond Boundaries: Feminine Forms is a dual-sited exhibition of artworks from The William and Uytendale Scott Memorial Study Collection of Works by Women Artists at Bryn Mawr College and the Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. The collaboration, conceived by graduate students in the History of Art Mechella Yezernitskaya and Laurel McLaughlin, brings together two institutions, collections, and professional curatorial teams for an exhibition that highlights and reexamines each institution's inclusive efforts to collect artworks by women.
The sister-sited exhibition features over 80 works on paper, paintings, and sculptures by 72 artists, including Kara Walker, Lesley Dill, Betye Saar, Edna Andrade, Eleanor Heller, Nancy Spero, Joan Mitchell, and Kay Walkingstick. The two sites are joined by programming and an exhibition catalogue available only at Bryn Mawr College.
Exhibitions and public programming are sponsored by the Friends of the Bryn Mawr College Library.
