#IfThenSheCan and Covid Hope Quilt on the National Mall
From March 5 to 27, 2022 the Arts and Industries Building’s FUTURES exhibition, the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, and Smithsonian Gardens have partnered to host the Smithsonian’s debut of #IfThenSheCan – The Exhibit.
This is the largest collection of statues of women ever assembled. The 120 life-sized 3D-printed statues are of a diverse coalition of contemporary women STEM innovators and role models leading a variety of fields, from protecting wildlife, discovering galaxies, building YouTube’s platform, to trying to cure cancer.
It’s an interesting collection and you can read about each woman featured. The contributions are impressive.
