Focus on Female Creativity

Help us celebrate the Baltimore Museum of Art’s 2020 Vision initiative and share the story of an artist, a caregiver, a frontline worker, a mentor, or friend in our living mosaic honoring female creativity and the women who have inspired you!

In honor of Diane Bush

Diane inspires me everyday. An artist from day one, Diane took up the Anti Vietnam War protest banner, and at 18 she was exiled with her draft dodger husband who had served 2 terms in the Peace Corp, but was not allowed a third to avoid killing the Vietnamese. After 10 years in the UK where she trained as a photographer, she returned to the USA to be a caregiver to her mother. She gained her MFA, and taught photography for many years, eventually getting involved in public art. At 65 her antiwar work "WARHEADS" was published by KUDA Editions. At 68 she finally had her British Street photography published by Cafe Royal Books. At 70, she is still creating internationally recognized political satire, either with the camera or through fiber art.
