Quick, can you name five women artists? Spend a lively afternoon with them and you’ll be able to name even more. Art history scholar Bridget Quinn will be here talking about the amazing and talented women featured in her book, Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History. Quinn looks back at artists from the Baroque era to the present, including, Ruth Asawa and Susan O’Malley, who lived and worked in the Bay Area.
