New Membership Portal Launch!

WCA is excited to announce the launch of our new member portal! This new portal offers a more contemporary and streamlined experience for our members. Over the course of the year, we will be continuing to upgrade the portal to bring more options to members in order to enhance the membership experience and offer more opportunities for engagement. Portal upgrades, training sessions and tutorials will be highlighted on this page and advertised in our monthly newsletter PULSE which arrives in each member’s inbox on the first of the month.

Second Saturday Sessions: 2022

The Second Saturday Sessions are programs that were originally scheduled for the WCA National Conference in February 2022. The in-person conference was canceled but WCA has pivoted much of the programming to be offered for free to WCA members. Registration is required to receive a link.

Past sessions that have been recorded can be viewed via the links provided here. Also included here are links to view the WCA Business Meeting at CAA and How an Almost-Forgotten Federal Program Kickstarted the Feminist Art Movement which was co-hosted by WCA.

If you have any questions, please contact Programming Chair Laura Morrison at [email protected]

Occupy the Moment,
Intersect History with Impact

Bridgeport Art Center, Chicago, IL

Juror: Dr. Maura Reilly

In the last half century, the art historical canon has been uprooted and redefined. The canon was erected on categorized colonial narratives and invented racial rankings. WCA has cast aside this “white male gaze” to define our own vision.

This National WCA 50th Anniversary exhibition features works that address this moment of 2022. Artists were encouraged to interpret the theme broadly, considering the multiple paths of how we arrived here and what we envision moving forward. We encouraged art that explored the ways that our identities and expressions intersect with such factors as environment, culture, time, and location. Artwork submission were open to any approach and form, subjects in range from the historic precedents set by political activism, to personal transformation, social engagement and beyond.
