From Suffrage to #MeToo: Groundbreaking Women in Sonoma County
2020 is the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, giving women the constitutional right to vote. While different in goal and origin, the recent #MeToo movement and women’s marches also represent pivotal change and the power of the collective voice to challenge the status quo. The Museum of Sonoma County’s exhibition, "From Suffrage to #MeToo: Groundbreaking Women in Sonoma County," explores the changing expectations, challenges, and obstacles to inclusion that women have faced and the remarkable people who have broken through the barriers.

Landscape: Awe to Activism
"Landscape: Awe to Activism" explores the evolvement of landscape art, from artists awe-inspired by the natural beauty and grace of the landscape, to those who are engaged in creation of land art, to activists utilizing art to address important issues such as climate change, land rights, and border politics.
