Maria Karras,Marguerite Elliot,Otis College of Art and Design con The Woman's Building and Feminist Art Education 1973-1991: A Pictorial Herstory
The Woman’s Building community became the spirited and fertile home of feminist art in Los Angeles from 1973-1991. The featured artists, writers, scholars, and musicians include a long list of brilliant women: Judy Chicago, Rita Mae Brown, Angela Davis, Phranc, Kate Millet, Faith Wilding, Lily Tomlin, Lucy Lippard, Arlene Raven, and Sheila de Bretteville. The vision and leadership of these women provided the centrifugal force for the Woman’s Building to become one of the major American centers for the activity of feminist art, music, writing, and graphics. The Woman’s Building 1973-1991 is a pictorial history and story of the Woman's Building and Feminist Art Education. We are thrilled to include essays as well as personal reflections of many of the prominent writers and artists who built the community over the 18 years of the Woman’s Building existence.
