Penn State University Libraries: Expanded Judy Chicago Research Portal Relaunches With Five Unified Collections
From a PSU Libraries Blog Post:
Penn State University Libraries has announced the relaunch of an expanded Judy Chicago Research Portal, a searchable gateway to the archives of this prominent feminist artist. The portal is intended to facilitate and support research and curriculum development around Chicago’s work and feminist art in general.
Initially launched in October 2019, the portal now features selections from her collections housed at the Nevada Museum of Art, the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation and the portal’s three founding partners, Schlesinger Library for the History of Women in America at Harvard University, the National Museum of Women in the Arts and Penn State University Libraries, the portal’s host. These five institutions have collaborated to expand the portal, providing unified access to these archives and collections.
Visitors to the portal can search across all five collections, or view holdings organized under “Bodies of Work” and “Themes” ranging across Chicago’s long career. Highlights include archival images of artworks and exhibitions from the 1960s to the present; working notes, correspondence and research behind her historic installation “The Dinner Party”(1974-79) as well as “The Dinner Party K-12 curriculum,” written by Chicago with a team of distinguished curriculum writers at Penn State; her comprehensive fireworks archives, including materials related to Chicago’s extensive bodies of work with colored smoke, dry ice and fireworks; and a complete collection of her work in printmaking.
