The purpose of our blog is to discuss topical issues, stories, and situations, as well as to share what we are up to and new ways for you to get involved. We are always searching for possible answers to the question: Why is a girl's worth culturally and historically relative?

New Exhibition: Girl Saints


Girl Museum is thrilled to announce the opening of our final exhibition of 2010, Girl Saints.  Girl Saints examines the lives, deaths, and artistic representations of sixteens girl saints.

Part of Girl Museum's mission is to celebrate girlhood, and through our "Girlhood in Art" series we explore ways this has been represented in art history. Depictions of girls being tortured and killed, whatever the reason, is not worthy of celebration. However, the destruction of girlhood is a strong theme throughout human history, with intentions ranging from forgiveness to peace. 

Regardless of your personal beliefs, do the messages justify the images? Visit Girl Saints and decide for yourself.

Don't forget to tell your friends to visit Girl Museum and all our exhibitions!

We're always open and always free.
