Douglass College Arts History from 1945-1975

Read this blog post by Rachel Ferrante (DRC ‘19) that looks at the history of arts at Rutgers. Douglass College and women artists played a major role. We are honored to continue this legacy by administering the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series in partnership with Rutgers University Libraries.
Ferrante notes, “The series continues to represent the values Mason Gross advocated as the president of Rutgers. It integrates art into academic space, uplifts the community beyond New Brunswick, and showcases diversity in artistic voice. The Mary H. Dana Women Artist Series maintains these values at Douglass today and reminds us of its history as the place for women in radical art.”
