moreAs the name suggests, the National Museum of Women in the Arts celebrates the creations and achievements of women artists. Since 1960s, the founder of the museum, Wilhelmina Cole Holladay, has been collecting notable art pieces created by women artists and adding to the long list of the museum's exhibits. The museum’s collection boasts of more than thousands of pieces, with the earliest work, i.e., Lavinia Fontana’s Portrait of a Noblewoman, dating back to the 16th Century.
