On the Basis of Art: 150 Years of Women at Yale
September 7, 2021

On the Basis of Art: 150 Years of Women at Yale showcases and celebrates the remarkable achievements of an impressive roster of women artists who have graduated from Yale University. Presented on the occasion of two major milestones—the 50th anniversary of coeducation at Yale College and the 150th anniversary of the first women students at the University, who came to study at the Yale School of the Fine Arts when it opened in 1869—the exhibition features works drawn entirely from the collection of the Yale University Art Gallery that span a variety of media, such as paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, photography, and video. Beginning with Josephine Miles Lewis, the very first student, male or female, to be awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, in 1891, the show highlights the work of nearly 80 artist-graduates.

German engages both the material and immaterial in her mixed-media artworks and in her practice as a citizen artist based in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Smith, Curator of Collections and Interim Director at the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, Atlanta, takes a multidisciplinary approach in her work and seeks to uplift shared culture and heritage.
