In this poster, we take on the museums of Venice:

Venice museum statistics

If you can't read the statistics in the image above, here they are as text:

It isn’t La Dolce Vita for female artists in Venice. Over the centuries, this city has been home to great artists like Marietta Robusti, Rosalba Carriera, Giulia Lama, and Isabella Piccini. They and many others succeeded when women had almost no legal rights and rules were set up to keep them out of the artworld. Where are the girl artists of Venice now? Underneath . . . in storage . . . in the basement. Go to the museums of Venice and tell them you want women on top!
