Women artists competing for awards at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition submitted their work to juries at appropriate buildings. Women artists were represented in the Palace of Fine Arts, along with their fellow countrymen.[1][2] Women exhibited painting and sculpture throughout the Fair.[2]

The Woman's Building did not have a juried exhibition, but lobbied to have artists of the day submit their work for the "Court of Honor".[3] Women also contributed to the decoration and statuary throughout the Woman's Building.[4][5]
