Feminist artist Judy Chicago is in San Diego to give a lecture May 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the San Diego Museum of Art. Chicago invites her audience to discuss her long , sometimes controversial career and her different projects, series and most recent work in glass according to her website.
"The Dinner Party" has been seen by more than a million viewers and is Chicago's best known work of art. It's been the subject of countless articles and art history texts. It's described as a monumental tribute to women's achievements in Western Civilization now permanently housed at the Brooklyn Museum. For over five decades , Chicago says she has remained true to her commitment to the power of art as way to encourage intellectual transformation and social change.
