CLARA: Database of Women Artists

I realized that it’s been awhile since I last blogged about feminist/women’s art resources, so I’m going to change that today! The National Museum of Women in the Arts maintains a database called CLARA, which offers authoritative information on 18,000+ women artists of all time periods and nationalities. Site visitors can browse included artists by last name, or can search by artistic role, nationality, styles, minority group, or work type/media.

I did a preliminary last name search for Cindy Sherman and learned that her database record also included key information such as her biography, past/present exhibitions and retrospectives, and awards received.
