Social Media Event for Women’s History Month Focuses on the Arts

The Governor’s Council on Women and Girls STEAM Arts in Education Group has created an exciting, multi-platform social media event to coincide with the March 2021 Women’s History Month. Every day this March, a prominent female artist will be showcased. This diverse group of artists represent local and national performers, authors, visual artists, and designers.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, please consider incorporating the Gallery into your classroom experiences.
