2019 Judy Chicago Art Education Award Announcement


Hi, I’m Judy Chicago,
and I want to tell you about the Art Education Award
that has been established in my name by Through
the Flower, a small arts organization whose
mission involves overcoming the erasure of
women’s cultural achievements. The purpose of the award is
to help encourage research in one of the three archives
that will preserve my legacy. The Schlesinger
Library for the History of Women in America at Harvard,
which holds my paper archives. Penn State, which has my
art education archive, and also makes available
free of charge the K through 12 dinner
party curriculum that I created with a
group of art educators. And lastly, the
National Museum of Women in the Arts in
Washington DC, which will hold my visual archive. Together, these
three institutions are establishing the
Judy Chicago Portal, in order to make access to my
archives available worldwide. The portal will be launched
on October 17, 2019 at the Schlesinger
Library, where we will present this year’s art award. If you are interested in
applying for the award, which consists of a $1,500 cash
prize and an award certificate, please contact
Through the Flower at [email protected] Remember, through your
research, you too, can help change history,
so that women are included, instead of excluded.
