Women’s History Month is in full swing and to celebrate, USF Tampa’s Department of Women’s and Gender Studies is hosting an exhibit of artwork on loan from the Museum of Motherhood. According to the event page, “The Founding Mothers: Women in Herstory” exhibit brings together various works including writing, activism and art by “feminists throughout herstory who have challenged conventional attitudes about gendered performance and motherhood.”

You’ll want to slide by during the opening reception on March 11 to feel the communal buzz while taking in the multimedia interactive exhibit that “encourages attendees to think critically about evolving family narratives and womyn’s place in society.” The exhibition will be on view from March 6-May 8 from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. or by appointment. 

Wed. March 11. 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. USF Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, 12010 USF Cherry Dr., CMC 202, Tampa. cltampa.com
