Through the 1928 founding of the Inter-American Commission of Women (CIM) as the “first inter-governmental agency established to ensure recognition of women's human rights” the Organization of the American States (OAS) has worked towards gender equality and inclusion. Likewise, the OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas has strived to amplify the work and voices of women and non-binary artists, since the early years of its initial incarnation as the OAS Visual Arts Program in the late 1940s. Achieving gender balance continues to be a slow process, but as a museum we are committed to this goal. Today we invite you to follow this #AMAatHome #AMAenCasa exhibition of works of a handful of women artists of our collection who haven't been shown as often as we would like. This exhibition shows a variety of media, including photography, painting, printmaking and sculpture, and features artists of Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru, the United States, and Venezuela.
