Abstract:

"In 1976, the Women's Art Registry of Minnesota opened a gallery in the revitalized Warehouse District of downtown Minneapolis - and introduced the Twin Cities to a feminist approach to art. For almost twenty years, WARM was a significant presence both nationally and in the dynamic local arts community, offering educational workshops throughout the state and a popular mentoring program, as well as an alternative exhibit space for Minnesota women artists." "WARM: A Feminist Art Collective in Minnesota is the first published history of this influential organization. Joanna Inglot's comprehensive historical essay documents WARM'S history and places it in the context of the national feminist art movement as well as within Minnesota's heritage of grassroots activism. Twelve prominent Minnesota artists are featured with biographical essays and full-color reproductions of their artwork, representative of the more than one hundred women who belonged to WARM and, along with many others, benefited creatively and professionally from the collective in a great variety of art media, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, textiles, graphic design, and installation art."--Jacket.
