What is NMWA?

The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA), founded by Wilhelmina Cole Holladay and Wallace F. Holladay, is located in Washington, D.C. It is the only museum dedicated solely to celebrating the achievements of women in the visual, performing and literary arts by housing, exhibiting, preserving and researching art by women. The permanent collection consists of more than 3,000 works in a wide range of styles and media-from Renaissance paintings to modern photographs and sculptures.
