When the Nineteenth Amendment passed one hundred years ago, women across the nation gained a vote and a voice in the democratic process. The High Museum of Art commemorates this centennial in Pioneers, Influencers, and Rising Voices: Women in the Collection, an exhibition honoring female groundbreakers and shakers in the artistic realm. Highlights include artistic luminaries such as installation pioneer Judy Pfaff and abstract minimalist Agnes Martin, along with rising stars Jamian Juliano-Villani and Ella Kruglyanskaya. The combined strength of these female voices is a testament to the suffragettes of the past, whose message of power and perseverance is no less relevant today.
Pioneers, Influencers, and Rising Voices: Women in the Collection is an ongoing exhibit. The High Museum of Art is open Tues–Sat, 10am–5pm; Sun, noon–5pm. Timed tickets only. 1280 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta. (404) 733-4400, high.org
