Dear Miss Stimpson

Yesterday I took four of my photographs of
women to Museum, 729 Broadway, to hang in the
exhibition there, opening Sunday Dec. 12, of
Feminist Art. This exhibition will continue thru
December 30, open daily, except Sunday, 1 to 7 P.M.

I also took for hanging four works of
Minnie Evans.

I send you this information in case you could
visit this exhibition.

Not all my art by any means could be classed as
Feminist Art, although I have had a strong streak of
feminism in me I guess always. Neither is Minnie
Evansā€˜ art feminist. Hers is Minnie Evans art, and
mine is Nina Starr's.

Here's best wishes to you and the Women's Center.

very sincerely

Nina Howell Starr

[handwritten] P.S. In my letter of Dec. 7 I said I had taken a course at Barnard in the 20s. I think it was called Economic and Social (not Political) Position of Women. My paper for the course was on Women in Politics.
