Judy Chicago likes Louisville. Most recently, the feminist artist and activist donated the “International Honor Quilt,” a companion piece to her iconic work “The Dinner Party,” to UofL’s Hite Art Institute. A number of Louisville artists helped Chicago create the “Hot Flash Fan” back in 1985. And her organization “Through the Flower” has Louisvillians on its board. Now Chicago is coming to Louisville again as part of the National Council of Jewish Women’s 120th anniversary celebration. Her public lecture will cover her long productive and controversial artistic life. The 75-year-old is still feisty and outspoken. She doesn’t mince words when it comes to what art and history has gotten right – and what we still need to do.
