DukeDC Women’s Forum

We loved hosting this awesome group of Duke ladies in the Chevy Chase gallery last week! This event was part of the DukeDC Women’s Forum’s Neighborhood Conversations series, a chance for Duke alumni, students, and parents in the area to celebrate their common connection.

Our own Duke alumna, Betsy, led the group through a discussion on The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, an incredible exhibition of books, manuscripts, photographs, and artifacts demonstrating “that women have long pursued a startling range of careers and vocations and that through their work they have supported themselves, their families, and the causes they believed in.” She related the works back to some of the women artists that are part of our collection at the gallery.
