“I can draw and write, and you’d be foolish not to hire me,” journalist Djuna

Barnes told the Brooklyn Daily Eagle in

1913. Those were bold words, especially

since at the time she wasn’t even allowed to vote. But the

newspaper hired her, kicking off a long and varied career

that included everything from news stories to novels. This

exhibition at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist

Art at the Brooklyn Museum in N.Y.C. features Barnes’

photographs, drawings, and news stories. Read the fine

print at brooklynmuseum.org, and when you visit be sure to

look for Barnes’ spot among other influential women in judy

Chicago’s mixed-media art piece "The Dinner Party."
