After a decade of professional art practice, in 1970 Judy Cohen legally changed her name to Judy Chicago, to liberate herself from male-dominated stereotypes.

Widely regarded as a pioneer of feminist art and art education, Chicago is an artist, author, feminist, educator, and intellectual whose career now spans four decades.

Chicago will speak about her life’s experiences in Kelowna on Thursday, March 24, as part of the Visiting Artist Series, sponsored by the Faculty of Creative and Creative Studies at UBC Okanagan.

Entitled “Surveying Judy Chicago: My struggle as a woman artist,” the presentation at 7 p.m. in the Rotary Centre for the Arts and is free and open to the public, however, online registration is required.

Registration will open on Monday, Feb. 14 at web.ubc.ca/okanagan/creativeandcritical

Chicago will have her latest two books, Frida Kahlo: Face to Face and The Dinner Party: From Creation to Preservation, available for purchase and signing after the presentation.
