As part of the Smithsonian magazine’s 14th annual Museum Day, The Beach Museum of Art will be hosting the national celebration honoring women in society who are trailblazers in the arts, sciences, innovation and culture, and emboldening others to be pioneers as well.
Celebrate by visiting the exhibition “Chipping the Block, Painting the Silk: The Prints of Norma Bassett Hall” and pick up a guide of works by women artists on display in the galleries.
Another highlight is a virtual exhibition on the Tall Grass Prairie by Patricia Duncan, that can be accessed on the Museum’s Touch the Prairie touch screen. This exhibition was part of the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibitions (SITES) program in the 1970s.
