About the Judy Chicago Art Education Collection
The Judy Chicago Art Education Collection, one of the most important private collections of archival materials on feminist art education, is now open to the public at Penn State University Libraries, 104 Paterno Library, on the University Park campus, as well as online. The collection, housed in the University Archives in the Special Collections Library, includes videos, photographs, and notes on Chicago’s teaching projects.
The collection, a gift to the Libraries from artist, author, and educator Judy Chicago, complements The Dinner Party Curriculum Online Project, developed by Marilyn Stewart, Peg Speirs, and Carrie Nordlund, under the directorship of Marilyn Stewart, and in collaboration with Judy Chicago and Constance Bumgarner Gee, given by the Through the Flower organization (TTF) to Penn State’s College of Arts and Architecture for its art education program.
The Judy Chicago Art Education Collection is a living archive on feminist art education. The Collection lives from continued scholarship and teaching in counterbalance to ongoing tendencies of erasure of feminist histories and feminist pedagogy. The participatory architecture of the Collection website invites the voices of many to develop a feminist art education generative archive. Visit http://judychicago.arted.psu.edu/
