Considered to be one of the artist’s most important bodies of work, Carrie Mae Weems’ Kitchen Table Series interweaves themes of race, class, gender, friendship, love, loss, power, and motherhood. The intimate and often political content of this narrative series finds common ground around the kitchen table, transcending the separation of domestic and civic space.

Artist Ann Weiner uses assemblage art to illuminate that which is too often hidden from view. This installation of life-size sculptures represents current day heroines for women’s rights.
