We invite you to join us at a Women's Caucus for Art Philadelphia Chapter meeting, held every 2nd Wednesday in Sarah Peter Cafeteria at Moore College of Art and Design at 7 p.m.   Our next meeting is September 14 at 7 p.m.

The mission of the Women's Caucus for Art is to create community through art, education, and social activism.  We are committed to: recognizing the contribution of women in the arts & providing women with leadership opportunities.   The Women's Caucus for Art, founded in 1972 in connection with the College Art Association (CAA), is a national member organization unique in its multi-disciplinary, multicultural membership of artists, art historians, students /educators, and museum professionals. 

The Philadelphia Chapter is the oldest chapter of the Women’s Caucus for Art. We are committed to: education about the contributions of women, opportunities for the exhibition of women's work, publication of women's writing about art, inclusion of women in the history of art, professional equity for all, respect for all individuals without discrimination, support for legislation relevant to our goal.  

We are involved in activism, promotion of skill sharing, art retreats, and museum and gallery exhibitions for which all of our members are eligible.  Upcoming shows are at Cabrini College and Sandy Spring Museum, and we recently closed shows at the Delaware Art Museum and International House Philadelphia.
