Welcome to the Illinois Women Artists Project, a unique gathering place to recognize and appreciate the work
and experiences of Illinois women artists from the past.

We invite you to read the artists’ stories, search the Illinois Women Artists database, view our online exhibit,
design an exhibit of your own, review our programming ideas, take a class—and learn more about art, history,
women,and Illinois.

Join us. The Illinois Women Artists Project offers an opportunity for you to become a historian and help
document our creative past.


The 2017 MIDWEST WOMEN ARTISTS SYMPOSIUM will be held November 2 - 3 on the Bradley University campus. See the Symposium heading above for information.
