This two-part exhibition combines period artworks and archival materials to trace pivotal events in the early history of the registry (known as WARM) and explores some of the ways its members catalyzed local art movements, programs and artists. With the national feminist art movement of the 1970s as a backdrop, this show reveals the significant role of WARM in shaping the careers of women artists in Minnesota and beyond.
