San Diego Museum Of Art Explores How Women During Wartime Influenced Industrialization

Aired 10/16/13 on KPBS Midday Edition.

GUEST:

Amy Galpin, Ph.D., Associate Currator of the Art of the Americas, at the San Diego Museum of Art

Transcript

We've all heard about Rosie the Riveter, the symbol of American women working in factories to help the U.S. win World War II. And we've also heard about how war and industrialization in general was a major factor in getting women out of the house and into the workplace.

Now those two influences are combined as the theme of a new exhibit at the San Diego Museum of Art.

Using posters, and artwork, many from the museum's permanent collection, the exhibit examines the subject of Women, War and Industry.

Women, War and Industry at the San Diego Museum of Art opens Saturday October, 19th and runs through February 18th
