Women of art

    Come spring, women will be well represented at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. The school and museum have received 400 works by women as a gift from collector and artist Linda Lee Alter.
    A report from the Associated Press says the works span the last century and include media like ceramics, photography, painting and sculpture. Alter began collecting the works in the ’80s.
