The Tribute to Women is the first stand-alone exhibit in North Carolina and one of only a handful of similar exhibits in the country that exclusively honor the contributions and achievements of women. It was created with a donation of the estate of Ruth Wicker, a local resident.
The interactive exhibit features educators, researchers, activists, advocates, journalists, nonprofit leaders, a musician and a pilot who called Greensboro home.
The inaugural honorees include:
- 31 individuals
- 4 organizations
- 6 City Council members, including two mayors
- 10 women who were “firsts” in their field or position
The Tribute to Women is located within the Barber Park Event Center, designed by architect Shermin Ata. Studio Displays created the exhibit. MBID International did the interior design.
