Judy Chicago (born Judith Sylvia Cohen, 1939) is an American feminist artist, art educator, and writer known for her large collaborative art installation pieces which examine the role of women in history and culture. The Dinner Party, now in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum, took Chicago five years and cost about $250, 000 to complete. Chicago conceived the project in her Santa Monica studio: a large triangle, which measures 48 -feet by 43-feet by 36-feet, consisting of 39 place settings. Each place setting commemorates a historical or mythical female figure, such as artists, goddesses, activists and martyrs. The project came into fruition with the assistance of over 400 people, mainly women, who volunteered to assist in needlework, creating sculptures and other aspects of the process ISBN: 0385145667 (China Painting, Needlework, Women in Art, Feminism in Art, Exhibitions)
