Created in 1987, the National Museum of Women in the Arts recognizes and shares the contributions women – of all eras and places – have made to the art world. They mark their 25th year with receipt of a prestigious international award and an exhibit on the Virgin Mary that has sparked some controversy. We talk with museum director Susan Fisher Sterling about how the organization’s mission has – and hasn’t – changed since its inception.
