In celebration of Women’s History Month, this tour looks inside the Yard through the lens of two artists who redefine gender stereotypes around working with industrial materials and techniques: Michelle Greene and Susan Woods. The tour starts at Building 92 where visitors will get a comprehensive overview of the Yard’s 200+ year history before visiting the studios of Greene and Woods who will share their experiences of working at the Yard (a combined 30+ years) and discuss their recent work.
