Judy Chicago and "The Dinner Party"

Artist Judy Chicago has donated her Art Education Collection to Penn State University. According to the university, the collection is “one of the most important private collections of feminist art.”

Chicago’s best known work is “The Dinner Party,” a 1974 piece that is now part of the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum. The work is a triangular table that includes a symbolic history of women in western civilization.

The Chicago works will be housed in the Special Collections Library on the Penn State campus in University Park. It will also be available for viewing online.
