While they haven’t always received the recognition they deserve, female artists should be appreciated as fundamental drivers of art’s evolution. Without the revolutionary contributions of household names like Mary Cassatt, Frida Kahlo, and Georgia O’Keeffe, and lesser-known artistic geniuses like Hilma af Klint, Amrita Sher-Gil, Frances Benjamin Johnston, and countless others, the world of art would not be what is it today.
March is Women’s History Month in the US. While our curatorial team makes a special effort to celebrate female artists both old and new year-round, this month we’re placing an even brighter spotlight on art created by women, and the stories behind it. 98% of the new art that joins the library this month was made by female artists, including a series of new Meural-exclusive commissions by female digital artists working today.
We’re thrilled to bring you works from digital artists like Clare Reika Wright, Molly Soda, Lumen Prize for Art and Technology winner Laura Hyunjhee Kim, and more to be announced throughout the month.
Join us as we continue our celebration of #WomensHistoryMonth, and bring you dedicated editorials, new commissions, and in-depth features on female artists you know and love, and those you might not have discovered yet.
You can follow Meural along on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @MeetMeural. Bring these incredible works of art to your wall using the Women’s History Month category on the Meural Art Library, and the Meural mobile app.
