Sponsored by the Women's Art Institute and the Abigail Quigley McCarthy Center for Women at St. Catherine University

Judy Chicago was a major mover in the development of feminist art education in the United States and locally at St. Catherine University. Join us for reflections and remembrances of the controversial Arts Core Program for Women by the women who were there. Instructors Ann Jennings and Carole Fisher join participants Sandra Menefee Taylor and Terri Hawthorne in considering: Why did it happen at St. Kate's? What were Judy Chicago's contributions? What was it like to teach and to learn? What is its legacy? Moderated by Patricia Olson, Director of the Women's Art Institute.
