The Sarah Ball Allis exhibit

March 26, 2023 June 11, 2023

The Charles Allis Art Museum, temporarily renamed the Sarah Ball Allis Art Museum in honor of the wife of Charles Allis, “celebrates femme, women and nonbinary narratives in art and history” in its current exhibit, according to marketing specialist Caroline Dannecker. 

The Sarah Ball Allis exhibit, which runs through June 11, is curated by contributing artist Kate E. Schaffer of the Everyday Feminist Art Collective and highlights the work of local and international artists, among them D. Denenge Duyst-Akpem, Michelle Grabner and Pia Cruzalegui.

Dannecker noted that Schaffer “collaborated with the museum to temporarily rename the institution from the Charles Allis Art Museum to emphasize Sarah’s contributions and the patriarchal erasure of women’s narratives from history.” 

Museum visitors can also learn more about Sarah Allis’s life by viewing photographs, documents, and rooms previously closed to the public, along with historical works of art and sculptures.
