In the current political climate of gender issues and cultural reflection across a diverse array of ideas, the Ackland Art Museum’s newest exhibition, "Becoming a Woman in the Age of Enlightenment: French Art from The Horvitz Collection," is uncommonly timely.

It conveys various depictions of the societal role of women spanning across 150 years of French art and will be on display from Jan. 26 to April 8.
