"Flipped''  is  an exhibition of works from the museum's permanent collection focused on women artists. Erika Neenan, a curatorial assistant at the museum, said that the title of the exhibition reflects the under-representation of women artists in major permanent art collections in the United States, where women account only 3-5  percent of total holdings. So "Flipped'' flips the numbers so that male artists account for  only 4 percent of the work on display. Many of the museum's founders were women.
