Format: Paperback
This beautifully illustrated book traces the history of Mother Art, a collective formed at the Los Angeles Woman's Building. The group produced provocative, yet sometimes humorous, performances highlighting the ongoing struggle for women's social equality. After reading their book, you'll want to roll up your sleeves, put on your apron, and do your part to support feminist rights!

Format: Paperback
Mother Art is a Los Angeles based artist group that produced innovative artworks during the 1970s and 1980s, often with a performative component, about the realities and dilemmas of this period in history. Using images, video, installations and performance, they were one of the first artist groups to do artworks in non-traditional venues like laundromats, the foyer of the Federal Building and public parks. Combining a strong graphic sense with a facile ability to use emerging technologies and a commitment to representing the social issues of this period, this talented group of women have made works about subjects as diverse as women's work, nuclear issues, homelessness, abortion rights, and the immigrant experience. Their work is relevant today.

Format: Paperback
The Women's Movement of the 1970s sparked an explosion of creativity in every area of American culture, but nowhere so conspicuously as in the visual arts. Los Angeles and its environs rivaled New York as the most influential site of artistic energy and innovation. The Feminist Art Program at Cal Arts created by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro (preceded by Chicago's program at Fresno) established radical new principles for women's creative work and feminist art education, in turn inspiring the creation of myriad feminist institutions, programs, and projects. These included the Woman's Building, the Feminist Studio Workshop, the Waitresses, Feminist Art Workers, Mother Art, and Sisters of Survival, each of which is the subject of a volume in a series of books published by Otis College of Art and Design. Issued in conjunction with their exhibition, Doin' It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman's Building, these new books provide the most comprehensive documentation to date of California's extraordinary role in generating the Feminist Art Movement.

Mother Art: A Collective of Women Artists documents the projects of a group of artists active from 1973 to 1986, one of many collaborations that grew out of Feminist Studio Workshop at the Woman's Building, but distinctive in its purpose to demonstrate that women could be both mothers and serious artists, at a time when the categories were deemed incompatible. The collective honored the domestic work of mothers through performances such as Laundry Works (performed in laundromats across the city and timed to the wash-dry cycle), and Rainbow Playground (designed and constructed by mothers, for and with their children). In 1980, when conservatives began to challenge Roe v.
