The Art of Judy Chicago

The Art of Judy Chicago Tuesday, August 31 ZOOM LECTURE by Linda L Reid on The Art of Judy Chicago. A FREE lecture to OLLI students from the ART CLUB. It was the 1970s, social change was in the air, and Judy Chicago was leading the pack for women’s rights. Her first monumental effort was to re-design a whole house, each room done by a different woman artist – a huge statement about gender issues. She went from there to the making of her famous Dinner Party, a 40-foot ceramic installation representing hundreds of female artists and she also works with smoke.
