In 2011, Penn State acquired the Judy Chicago Art Education Collection, one of the most important private collections of archival materials on feminist art education. Open to the public, it is housed in the University Archives in the Special Collections Library (104 Paterno Library) and includes videos, photographs, and notes on Chicago’s teaching projects.

In honor of Chicago’s 75th birthday in 2014, and in celebration of the Penn State School of Visual Arts’ relationship with this pioneering artist, educator, and author, the University will host a symposium, exhibitions, lectures and other events highlighting Chicago’s work, throughout the spring 2014 semester.
