On Thursday, March 14th PAFA will bring their current series, A Room of Her Own: Women in American Art to the Delanco Public Library.

This series takes a look at boundary busting nineteenth century artists like Cecilia Beaux and Violet Oakley, and traces the forces of political and cultural change in American history that have both inspired and challenged women artists. Featured heavily will be works by 20th century artists that were part of a recent gift to PAFA by Linda Lee Alter, whose diversity of perspectives can tell us a great deal about who we are and where we've come from, from the political statements of Faith Ringgold and Sue Coe to the gorgeous abstractions of Edna Andrade and Elizabeth Osborne.

The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Traveling Lecture Series brings museum staff members into the community to give free talks on a variety of subjects.

The program begins at 7 p.m.  Registration is requested.
