All statues that make up the Exhibit have been displayed together during two full exhibits - one at NorthPark Center in Dallas in 2021 and the other at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC in March of 2022. Four ‘pop-up’ exhibits have made it possible for additional visitors to experience #IfThenSheCan – The Exhibit. Right now, a pop-up of 15 statues is on display at Pegasus Park in Dallas, TX. And in 2020, when COVID-19 delayed the launch of the full exhibit, IF/THEN® made three preview pop-ups of the exhibit possible at the Central Park Zoo, at Dallas Love Field and at NorthPark Center in Dallas, TX.

A Pop-Up Exhibit is currently on display at Pegasus Park in Dallas, TX.

The Smithsonian presented #IfThenSheCan - The Exhibit on and around the National Mall in celebration of Women’s History Month and the power of women and girls in STEM to shape a better world.

National Celebration of Women STEM Innovators

For the first time on a national stage, 120 statues of women were unveiled to the public on March 5th, kicking off the month-long Women's Futures Month festival with an exciting lineup of Smithsonian programming for visitors of all ages and gender expressions to dream big and see themselves as scientists-in-the-making. Opening weekend festivities included a unique opportunity to meet AAAS IF/THEN Ambassadors during a free Work It! FUTURES Career Day and to enjoy inspiring activities for future-makers of all ages during a FUTURES Girl Power Family Day.

All 120 statues were placed in the Arts + Industries Building, the Smithsonian Castle, the adjacent Enid A. Haupt Garden, the National Air and Space Museum and the National Natural History Museum through March 27th.
