Marc Truant & Associates, Inc. is proud to support “On Equal Terms”, an exhibit on women in construction.

The exhibit at the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University, recreates the experience of the first women who crossed onto construction sites in 1978, as part of a major federal effort promoting jobs and apprenticeship training for women.

“On Equal Terms” combines realistic and fanciful works of art with first-person testimony. Susan Eisenberg, an artist, poet, activist, and master electrician, has interviewed more than two dozen women in the trades about their inspiration, frustration and experiences. Her mixed media installation reflects these candid conversations.

The opening reception is Thursday, Oct. 16, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Women’s Studies Research Center, and will honor the contributions of Massachusetts tradeswomen. The installation runs from Monday, Oct. 6 through Friday, Jan. 9.

Marc Truant & Associates, Inc. managed the construction of the Women’s Studies Research Center, which involved the adaptive re-use of 10,000 square feet of industrial warehouse space in a gateway building to the Brandeis campus. The space was conceived to house multidisciplinary research in the area of international feminism, women’s history, and gender equity.
