The art world is dominated by men and always has been. Although the Kennedy Museum of Art has many pieces by female artists, our collection predominantly consists of works created by men. We, and museums around the world, are trying to address that.  The KMA Picks project turned exhibition titled “Representation of Women in Art: Selections from the Kennedy Museum of Art ” focuses on how women are represented by both male and female artists.
