Women’s Caucus for Art Michigan


Welcome to the Women’s Caucus for Art Michigan Chapter (WCAMI). We welcome self defined women artists from Michigan, and those around the country who are interested in what’s happening here.

About Women’s Caucus for Art

The Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA) was founded in 1972 in connection with the College Art Association (CAA). WCA is a national member organization unique in its multidisciplinary, multicultural membership of artists, art historians, art writers, critics, curators, students, educators, and museum professionals.

WCA Mission:

The mission of the Women’s Caucus for Art is to create community through art,
education, and social activism

We are committed to:
  • recognizing the contributions of women in the arts
  • providing women with leadership opportunities and professional development
  • providing exhibition opportunities for women
  • expanding a national network of women in the arts
  • supporting local, national, and global art activism
  • advocating for equity in the arts for all

As members of the WCA, the Michigan Chapter is dedicated to upholding the mission of the greater WCA while committed to supporting the efforts and vision of Michigan’s women artists.
