HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL-JAN. 3, 2017-SHEROES&HEROES: ARTISTS
Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Pastor, Rev. Brian Merritt
I think what’s important is to give space to the range of human experience. Judy Chicago
Judy Chicago is an American feminist artist , art educator, and writer known for her large collaborative art instillation pieces which examine the role of women in history and culture. By the 1970s, Chicago had coined the term “feminist art” and had founded the first feminist art program in the United States. Chicago’s work incorporates stereotypical women’s artistic skills, such as needlework, counterbalanced with stereotypical male skills such as welding and pyrotechnics.
Today’s action: Watch the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s video “Judy Chicago: It’s a Man’s World.”
Sharing: We would love to hear your ideas on Judy Chicago’s vision of art. Is there a trailblazing feminist artist that has influenced your thought?
