The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) may be temporarily closed for renovations, but it’s still working to elevate the amazing works of women.
Amid the renovations, an eye-catching four-story mural currently envelopes the building.
The work of muralist Cita Sadeli, also known as MISS CHELOVE, “Reseeded: A Forest Floor Flow” is printed on a mesh fabric now draped over the museum, portraying a woman surrounded by plants and wildlife.
According to the NMWA, “The artist’s image of a woman surrounded by plants native to the islands of Indonesia alludes to the resurgence of the natural world during the pandemic and the critical role of women in ecological activism.”
The renovations to the NMWA are part of a $67.5 million campaign, with the museum expected to reopen in fall 2023. While the museum is closed, virtual exhibits and experiences are available via its website.
You can see the mural in-person until July 31, 2022, at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, 1250 New York Ave. NW, Washington, D.C., 20005.
