Some stories refuse to be ignored, despite concentrated efforts to erase contributions women have made in techno-industrial fields. Artist Pat Benincasa tells the story of thirteen women who defied spirit-crushing social norms to invent, race and design their way into automotive history.

From Paintings To Video!

Visual artist, Pat Benincasa created Women At The Wheel, a series of thirteen 12”x 12” sheet metal paintings of a woman or group of women with an attached artifact from the time the woman lived. Ms. Benincasa wrote and researched archival documentation and photographs to produce this video.
