Picturing Women Inventors

The Smithsonian and the United States Patent and Trademark Office present “Picturing Women Inventors,” a poster exhibition that explores the inventions of 19 highly accomplished American women. Astronauts, computer pioneers, and businesswomen join athletes, engineers, and even teenagers in this remarkable group of inventors. The posters will be on view at the Museum of Work & Culture from September 1 through October 30, 2021. “Picturing Women Inventors” showcases the breakthroughs, motivations, and challenges women encountered while pursuing their goals as inventors. Also on display within this exhibition will be Rhode Island Women Create, a snapshot of the historical accomplishments of Rhode Island women in the arts and sciences, using objects drawn from the Rhode Island Historical Society’s collections. 

Museum of Work & Culture’s Labor Day Celebration is sponsored by the Rhode Island Labor History Society.

“Picturing Women Inventors” is distributed at no cost to schools, libraries, museums, and community organizations by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in collaboration with the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation and the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It’s sponsored by Lyda Hill Philanthropies IF/THEN Initiative and Ericsson.
