National Museum of Women in the Arts presents first major museum exhibition of Audrey Niffenegger | Feminism & Everything | Scoop.it

"The National Museum of Women in the Arts presents Awake in the Dream World: The Art of Audrey Niffenegger, the first major museum exhibition of visual artist and author of The Time Traveler’s Wife. In this mid-career retrospective on view June 21–Nov. 10, 2013, Niffenegger reveals a mysterious, strange and whimsical world, both real and imagined, through 239 paintings, drawings, prints and book art.
“Niffenegger’s captivating narratives, presented in both images and words, give insight into universal experiences such as the need and fleeting nature of love, the inevitability of death and the peculiar sensation of the passage of time,” said Krystyna Wasserman, exhibition curator."
