Women of the World

Women of the World: A Global Collection of Art

A dazzling collection of art by women from across the globe was originally intended to be auctioned off in 2003. New Orleans collector Richard C. Colton, Jr. was so moved by the power of the assemblage, however, that he bought it whole in order to keep it that way, and to share it with the world. Conceived by Claudia DeMonte, each of the 176 female artists of this fabulous collection donated their pieces to the exhibition to raise money to help other women. What was designed as a single transitory show has become an enduring, gender-transcending metaphor for the common ground of struggle and beauty among cultures. Read Richard Colton’s project story here.
