Women’s History Month March 2023: Adult Programs

womens history month programs

Women’s History Month is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. It is celebrated during March in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, corresponding with International Women’s Day on March 8.

The Library is commemorating the celebration with the following two women-themed lectures:

On March 6th at 7pm we present Three Visionary Women/Three Great Museums.

What does a woman do when she is born to great privilege, has enormous wealth, loves to travel to faraway places, and has a healthy dose of intellectual curiosity? 

Well, she collects art of course! And then she must envision a place to exhibit her treasures so that the world can appreciate her passion. 

This talk will examine the lives of three remarkable women who defied society’s expectations: Isabella Stewart Gardner, Helene Kröller-Müller, and Peggy Guggenheim. 

Speaker Janet Mandel  will trace the steps each took to amass three of the most important collections of art in the world and how they built the museums to hold their treasures. And you will see some amazing paintings, too.  Come along on the journey!

On March 13th we present Quilting Through The Centuries at 7pm.

Quilting is one of the oldest forms of women’s crafting. 

Join Liberty Hall Museum, a historic house and garden museum located in Union, New Jersey, as we weave together how the history of quilting in the United States provides key insights into the history of women from colonial times to today. 

Discover how changing technology altered the popular forms of quilting and how women have used quilting as a way to have their voices be heard.  Whether utilitarian or artistic, quilts provide us clues of what life was like for American women over the past 250 years. 

This talk is accompanied by images and videos of quilts and historic quilting techniques as well as actual hand sewn quilts from Liberty Hall’s collection.

Both these programs are made possible with the support of The Friends of the Livingston Public Library.  No registration is required to attend.  We look forward to seeing you at these events.
