Charity description

UK Friends NMWA  logo
UK Friends of NMWA champions art by women with a UK connection through innovative events, collection tours and studio visits. We support the mission of the National Museum of Women in the Arts ('NMWA') in Washington, DC., the only museum in the world dedicated exclusively to exhibiting, preserving and researching art by women.

NMWA, the Women's Museum, is committed to celebrating the achievements of women artists of all time periods and nationalities. Based in Washington, D.C., the Museum celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2012. In honour of this silver anniversary, UK Friends of NMWA acquired for the Museum New Bird II a sculpture by the iconic British artist Dame Elisabeth Frink. In honour of the Museum's 30th anniversary and UK Friends' 10th anniversary, we are sponsoring an exhibition of work from the Museum at the Whitechapel Gallery until April 2017.

UK Friends of NMWA not only supports the mission of the Museum but it educates the public and helps promote awareness of art by women with a connection to the UK. UK Friends of NMWA

-publishes a monthly e-newsletter presenting the charity’s events as well as an extensive listing and description of exhibitions featuring women artists throughout the UK
