This map was created by Rochester Institute of Technology alumna, Claudia Paulson. The project was developed in Dr. Rebecca DeRoo’s Gender and Contemporary Art class and was expanded in collaboration between RIT and RMSC. Map development was generously supported by the RIT College of Liberal Arts and the RIT Moving Forward Committee.

All information within this map has been compiled by project participants from community resources including, but not limited to, first hand interviews, archival documents, collections materials and online sources. This map is a living document we are continually updating with new information to ensure accuracy and authentic voice.
