on Saturday, June 23, 2018
In this episode of Radio Art Center, the Des Moines Art Center's Director of Marketing and PR Christine Crawford sits down with Director of Curatorial Affairs / Senior Curator Alison Ferris to discuss the exhibition In the Spirit of Louise Noun.
Many people in Des Moines remember or know about Louise Rosenfield Noun (1908 – 2002), who was a leader in the community as well as a feminist, civic and social activist, philanthropist, art historian, and collector of art. She was a dedicated leader at the Art Center as an active member of the Acquisitions Committee and the Board of Directors. In addition to her invaluable gift of guidance and time, she bequeathed the Art Center her collection of more than 200 works of art by women artists.
