Since 2011, Penn State has housed the Judy Chicago Art Education Collection, one of the most important private collections of archival materials on feminist art education. In honor of Chicago’s 75th birthday in 2014, and in celebration of the Penn State School of Visual Arts’ relationship with this pioneering artist, educator and author, the University will host a symposium, exhibitions, lectures and other events highlighting Chicago’s work throughout the spring 2014 semester.
Judy Chicago keynotes the symposium on April 5, 2014, calling for a re-conceptionalization of studio art teaching in higher education. Registration for the symposium, “Planting a Feminist Art Education Archive,” is open now. A full schedule of the “Judy Chicago at Penn State” events is posted at http://judychicago.arted.psu.edu/judy-chicago-at-penn-state/.
