Detroit Society of Women Painters and Scuptors

Now Open - July 6, 2014

Officially organized on February 23, 1903, the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors is one of the oldest, self-sustaining women’s art organizations in the United States.  Their membership is drawn from all over southeastern Michigan and is open to all women visual fine artists. 

The DSWPS aims for high achievement among its many members by holding juried exhibitions, presenting interesting and informative programs at each meeting.  Another DSWPS goal is outreach to and encouragement of art students. 

This exhibition will tell the story of this dynamic organization, while also displaying more than 90 works from their members and the Detroit Historical Society's collection.
