Yale University Art Gallery is planning a celebration of the work of Yale-educated women artists in a new exhibition, On the Basis of Art: 150 Years of Women at Yale, from September through January 2022

On the Basis of Art: 150 Years of Women at Yale celebrates the vital contributions of generations of Yale-trained women artists to the national and international art scene. Through an exploration of their work, the exhibition charts the history of women at the Yale School of Art (formerly Yale School of the Fine Arts) and traces the ways in which they challenged boundaries of time and circumstance and forged avenues of opportunity—attaining gallery and museum representation, developing relationships with dedicated collectors, and securing professorships and teaching posts in a male-dominated art world.

The Yale University Art Gallery is currently closed until further notice. More information is available at
