The collection includes art spanning 2,500 years from all seven continents and tells the story of grit and perseverance of women in the arts while celebrating their incredible artistic talents. During the concert, select pieces from the 'Women Who Dared' collection were seen by the public for the first time ever, as well as messages from celebrity ambassadors Carol Burnett and Wendie Malick.
