Quick, can you name five women artists? Spend a lively afternoon with us and you’ll be able to name even more!

This won’t be a dry art history lecture; Bridget Quinn’s writing is fun, funny, and accessible so whether you’re an art historian or an amateur art enthusiast you’ll definitely have a good time.
