MARCH 16 – MAY 8, 2020: The Rio Gallery is closed until further notice.*****The year 2020 marks two milestone celebrations of women’s suffrage: the 150th anniversary of Utah women becoming the first to vote in the modern nation, and the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment that gave women in the U.S. the right to vote. To commemorate these events, the Department of Heritage & Arts and the Utah Division of Arts & Museums presents the exhibition Women to the Front: Perspectives on Equality, Gender, and Activism.This exhibition features 15 contemporary artists whose practice areas include photography, installation, painting, performance, illustration, drawing, and printmaking. Their work informs, but by no means defines, the colossal role of women in contemporary art and culture.  Participating artists include Erin Coleman, Céline Downen, Annelise Duque, Lindsay Frei, Jamie Harper, Rachel Henriksen, Stephanie Leitch, Kylie Millward, Lis Pardoe, Wren Ross, Denae Shanidiin, Fazilat Soukhakian, Marcela Torres, Mary Toscano, and Jaclyn Wright.Curators: Nancy Rivera and Scotti Hill*Featured image: Jamie Harper, Desert, Inkjet print, 2019
