Women's Luncheon

Monday, November 12, 2018

11:00am - 2:00pm

Celebrate women, art and education in our community at the 14th annual Women's Luncheon on Monday, November 12, 2018.

Held at the Taubman Museum of Art, guests will enjoy the galleries during an opening reception, then a seated meal where two women in our community will be honored for their monumental contributions to the arts. A keynote presentation from an exhibiting artist in our galleries will round out this special afternoon.
Luncheon Keynote Speaker:
Katherine J. Parkin

In conjunction with our 2018 banner exhibit, DRIVE! Iconic American Cars and Motorcycles, this year's speaker will be Katherine J. Parkin, Professor History at Monmouth University and author of Women at the Wheel: A Century of Buying, Driving and Fixing Cars.

Parkin will address key themes in her book that illuminates the social impolications of how we-in American culture-have positioned the experience of buying, driving and fixing cars (for men vs. women) in advertising, pop-culture, and literature-really how this messaging has influenced social norms in our society.

Published in August 2017, the book has received national acclaim and is winner of the Emily Toth Award for best book in feminist pop culture, 2018.
