Often Women have had to fight or go against the social norms of the day to dream the impossible, and, through their grit, they have made extraordinary things happen. This exhibit is devoted to the women who have braved the heat and dust in the forlorn desert outpost of the Coachella Valley region of California right up to the women of today who continue to brave the unknown in their pursuit of a better life for all who live here. These are the women who work hard to do good things. These are the women we honor.
Exhibit Now Open in the Smiley-Tyler House.
