  • Description

    A permanent exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum dedicated to feminist art in the past, present, and future. Named after its founder, the center’s mission is to create an education environment, raising awareness of feminism’s cultural contributions, and learning about the meaning of feminist art and its importance.
    The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art is the permanent home of ‘The Dinner Party’ by Judy Chicago, and to the biographical gallery highlighting the women represented in the artwork.
    Visitors can participate in educational programs and explore the current exhibitions, such as Cecilia Vicuña’s ‘Disappeared Quipu’, and ‘Half the Picture: A Feminist Look at the Collection’. The center established the Feminist Art Base – the first digital archive of past and present feminist artists from around the world.
    The center was founded in 2007 by Elizabeth A. Sackler, a public historian, arts activist, and an American-Indian advocate. Sackler wanted to create a home for feminist art, a place of dialog and discussion about equality and justice for feminism as reflected in art.

    What Is Feminist Art?
