Intimate Circles

This exhibit "explores the lives of women -- writers, artists, publishers, performers, collaborators, and community builders -- whose energies set in motion lasting aesthetic and cultural practices. The women portrayed here lived primarily in the late-nineteenth through the mid- twentieth centuries." Features essays on the Chicago Renaissance, expatriates, Harlem Renaissance, New York, and the southwest and associated annotated images (also viewable by name or profession). From the Yale University Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
