Nellie Mae Rowe Lecture: Home Sweet Home - A Feminist Look at Nellie Mae Rowe

A Lecture by Joyce Cohen, Assistant Professor of Art History at Simmons College, Boston

March 11, 2010 at The High Museum of Art, Atlanta

Nellie Mae Rowe’s art overflows with images of house and home — a giant teapot, her favorite rocking chair, bright quilts, and patterned surfaces. Following an introduction by Susan Crawley, Curator of Folk Art at Atlanta's High Museum of Art (2004 - 2013), Professor Cohen examines Rowe’s distinctive expressions of a woman’s space and a woman’s life within the context of 20th century feminist theory.
