Academic Year 2023-24 marks the 50th anniversary of the Center for the Study of Women in Society (CSWS) at the University of Oregon. JSMA joins our colleagues in the campus-wide celebration of CSWS’s history of intersectional feminist research including; considerations of gender, race, class, ability, and sexual orientation; and a commitment to social justice and gender equality.


Many of the works in With Open Eyes reflect aspects of the core themes of research the CSWS has been pursuing and all exhibit an individuality of vision that is singular and distinct.  As we continue to expand the permanent collection in breadth and depth both exceptional photographs by established and lesser-known artists have recently been added.


Curatorial responsibilities were shared between Thom Sempere, JSMA Associate Curator of Photography and Brit Micho, UO MA, Art History, Class 2023.
