Women played a seminal role in shaping La Jolla in the early 20th century, providing leadership in civic and cultural life, and leaving a legacy by their example as community organizers, businesswomen, educators, and architects. In this exhibition, the lives of ten women pioneers is examined and artistically interpreted by ten contemporary artists, all women practicing in San Diego. The pioneer women are Louise Balmer, Mabel Bell, Florence Sawyer Bransby, Anna Held, Florence Palmer, Lilian Rice, Mary Richmond, Mary Ritter, Ellen Browning Scripps, and Virginia Scripps.
