From October 19, 2013, through February 18, 2014, The San Diego Museum of Art will present Women, War, and Industry, an exhibition examining the ways women have been represented in relation to war and industry in modern and contemporary art.

Highlighting many never-beforedisplayed works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, this exhibition includes World War I and II era posters, and recent acquisitions in photography.

During the 20th century, the advent of war and increased industrialization led to major changes in the lives of women: their roles in families, the way in which they dressed, and the manner in which they were perceived in the public sphere. Bringing together work created in diverse media, this exhibition examines the iconic, historical, and fictional ways in which women have been represented in relation to the complicated and related factors of war and industry.

The San Diego Museum of Art is located at 1450 El Prado in Balboa Park, San Diego. General Information, (619) 232-7931, Website:,
