The mission of the Women's Caucus for Art is to create community through art, education, and social activism

Past Honor Awards Recipients

These awards recognize the contributions made by women who have distinguished themselves by their activism and commitment to the women's movement and the arts. Selections for the Annual Honor Awards for Lifetime Achievement are among the most important actions the WCA takes to increase the recognition of women's contributions in the visual arts. Note: More catalogues will be added in near future.
