Event Details

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. This won’t be a dry art history lecture; Bridget Quinn’s writing is fun, funny, and accessible so whether you’re an art historian or an amateur art enthusiast you’ll definitely have a good time.

Bridget Quinn is a writer, art history scholar, and sports fan who lives in San Francisco. Her work has appeared in various magazines and literature and non-fiction anthologies. She has worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and for galleries and private collections.
