"Many of the people who live in our area ... still believe that an art museum is not for them, that that's a place for rich people. The message is, 'it belongs to you.' It's not my museum. It's this community's museum." Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art is now free to residents of Hartford, CT!

"As sportswomen advance to equal their male peers, and photojournalists become more inclusive with regards to whom they feature, the National Portrait Gallery looks forward to adding more amazing women—and men—to the nation’s family album." National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution director Kim Sajet on why the museum has fewer portraits of female athletes than they would like (and how they are working to change that now). It's not just because of historic barriers to access for women in sports: the museum did not collect photographs until 1976, and did not collect portraits of living people other than US Presidents until 2001.
