The Rad Fresno State Women exhibition, a collaboration of the Henry Madden Library’s Arne Nixon Center for Children’s Literature and the Women’s Studies and Art and Design departments, is now on display at the Fresno Art Museum through May 1. The group of hand-carved and hand-pulled woodcut portraits, inspired by the children’s book “Rad American Women A-Z,” depicts past and present female Fresno State students, faculty and staff who are pioneers and innovators in their respective fields. The exhibition includes the original woodblocks and corresponding prints, oversized versions that were installed outdoors on the campus and biographies of each woman.
