ABOUT JUDY CHICAGO
Judy Chicago is one of the most influential artists of our century. Social justice has driven her career and she has fought for equality in the art world for women and marginalized artists for the entirety of her six-decade career. From her early career, her work was often overlooked by male curators and critics favoring artwork created by men. Rather than backing down, Chicago took on the challenge of changing the art world through the founding of the first Feminist Art Program, her epic work, “The Dinner Party” and the K-12 “Dinner Party” Curriculum and her subsequent projects and images. Now, Chicago is taking on the challenge of trying to bring about world-wide change through art by using her enormous stature in the art world. With her “Solstice” project, she hopes to use art to bring the same degree of attention to our planet’s needs as she brought to the need to recognize women’s contributions throughout history.
