September 27 – October 19, 2018

A tradition at the Koehnline is its annual collaboration with the Women and Gender Studies program to bear witness to the many creative women sharing their unique visions in the visual, literary, and performing arts. Nevertheless She Persisted focuses on the reserves of strength and resilience women display. We see it in the courage of women in emerging grassroots movements such as #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter, the National Women’s Marches, the LGBTQIA+ and international human rights movements, and the remarkable young leaders of the Parkland survivors. It rises in the determination of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Dolores Huerta, Elizabeth Warren, and countless others trying to break the glass ceiling in U.S. government and politics.

Public Reception: Thursday, September 27, 5 – 8 p.m.

Koehnline Museum Of Art 1600 E Golf Rd, Des Plaines, Illinois 60016

“Nevertheless She Persisted: Women of Courage, Tenacity and Strength “From labor movements to athletics, from business to the media, politics and the arts, women today are making waves, working to create a better world for themselves, their families, and for us all. For this year’s annual juried women’s art exhibition, Oakton WGS, in collaboration with the Koehnline Museum of Art, invited artists to submit pieces that celebrate women who persist. You are cordially invited to join us for a gala opening night reception honoring the artists and their work. The show opens September 27 and runs until October 19.
