Virtual Event

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco celebrate pioneering feminist artist Judy Chicago with a retrospective spanning from her early engagement with the Californian Light and Space Movement in the 1960s to her current body of work. The exhibition includes approximately 130 paintings, prints, drawings, and ceramic sculptures, in addition to ephemera, films, and a documentary. Together, these works of art chart the boundary-pushing path of the artist named Cohen by birth and Gerowitz by marriage, who, after trying to fit into the patriarchal structure of the Los Angeles art world, decided to change her name and the course of history.

Join a live general highlights tour via Zoom at 11:00 am with docent Karen Libby who will explore highlights of the exhibition with opportunity to ask questions. She will provide highly detailed descriptions of the artwork discussed. This program will also be captioned.
