Show & Tell at Art+Feminism CT

Though Art+Feminism is a virtual event, we want to ground it in local and community spaces and organizations. In that vein we invited the submission of brief videos in which partners share an item in their collections that speaks to the themes of this event. These videos are displayed as part of a “show and tell” playlist below.

1. The Sacrifice (1922) by Kathe Kollwitz
