Jodi, Mary, and I went to see the Judy Chicago exhibit at the National Museum for Women in the Arts, which is in  honor of her 75th birthday.

We found her works fascinating and her life even more so. She was born Judith Cohen but she later "divested herself" of her surname, which was the result of a male-dominated naming convention. In the 1970s she coined the term "feminist art" and was one of the pioneering feminist artists.

Her "Dinner Party" is considered her masterpiece and it can be found in the Brooklyn Museum.

After viewing the Chicago exhibit and visiting other exhibits, we had lunch in the Mezzanine Cafe of the museum.
