For years the work of Luchita Hurtado, one of the world’s most esteemed painters, went unrecognized. But now, as she nears 100 years of age, Luchita has received international recognition for her art. She was named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, has received a lifetime achievement award, and she’s landed a career retrospective at the Serpentine Gallery in London. How did she do it? With the help of a group of women who refused to let their passions and talents take a back seat to marriage and motherhood, and instead, came together to lift each other up. Watch the latest episode of Hidden Figuras to find out more.
