As a former student, I would love to see the five art department stand up to some of the problems faced by female artists throughout history, which I only learned about on this course. Time to practice what we preach ❤️

This is a worth while partition and a fantastic idea. A perfect opportunity for Newcastle University to recognise the hard work and success of female artists from Newcastle University. It's never to late to change the status quo... Let's make Rita proud!

I believe that the name RITA's should be the new name for the Ex-Libris Gallery as it stands for many things that are central to the University, and the Fine Art department in particular.

Rita should be recognised and celebrated. She should not be invisible! She exists!
