APRIL 4
Judy Chicago: Feminist Artist Speaking for Women

Judith Levine will examine the work of the American feminist artist, Judy Chicago. Levine and Chicago attended art schools at the same time and infused their art with experiences of being a woman and
shared the same determination to challenge the status quo. Chicago became a leading figure in feminist art for her art collaborative project “The Dinner Party.” This installation tells the history of women in Western Civilization. It has been shown around the world and is considered by many to be Chicago’s greatest work. But, for many years she was shunned for this imagery being too sexually explicit. We will examine Chicago’s commitment to create art from a female point of view.

Judith Levine has a bachelor’s in art and art education, and a master’s in visual arts from Montclair State University (NJ), where she was on the art education faculty. She has photographed the art of Tibet, West Africa, Egypt, and Indonesia. She creates limited-edition jewelry and owns Phoenix Art Workshops, which provides art talks and workshops.
