Minnesota Women’s Caucus for Art
December 2011 – Present
Founded in 1972, the Women’s Caucus for Art (commonly known as WCA) is a US-based 501(c)(3) organization known for its multi-disciplinary, multicultural membership of artists, art historians, students, educators, and museum professionals. The mission of the WCA is to create community through art, education and social activism. This mission is supported by state and regional WCA chapters as well as special interest internal caucuses. Its stated purpose is to recognize the contributions of women in the arts, provide women with leadership opportunities and professional development, expand networking and exhibition opportunities for women, support local, national and global art activism and advocate for equity in the arts for all.As a United Nations affiliated NGO (non-governmental organization), the Women’s Caucus for Art supports UN goals by creating art platforms and using the universal language of art to “engage artists, NGOs, and civil society on a broad range of issues such as gender equity and environmental sustainability.” WCA is a founding member of The Feminist Art Project. As such, ”WCA is a part of a collaborative national initiative celebrating the Feminist Art Movement and the aesthetic, intellectual and political impact of women on the visual arts, art history, and art practice.”
