Inspiring

I really enjoyed this book. As a filmmaker and professor, it was inspiring to learn how
female artists fought for equality in showing their work and being
recognized by the arts establishment four decades ago. I appreciate the efforts of these
women in paving the way for those who followed. The book captures a sense of adventure and excitement
and evokes a time of great passion in a changing social landscape.

The book is well-written and the design is beautiful.

I loved seeing all the wonderfully compelling photos! The book provides an insight into the spirit of that heady time in Los Angeles when women artists claimed a building of their own.

This very well written pictoral history captures a pivotal period in the (r)evolution of feminist arts and contemporary art in Los Angeles. Through reminscences and carefully selected photographs the joyousness and creativity of these women, their journey, and their enduring influence on art, feminism, and Los Angeles is celebrated and preserved. A must read for historians and others interested in this important period. Beautifully designed and presented. Highly recommended.

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.

The Woman's Building & Feminist Art Education 1973-1991, edited by Marguerite Elliot and Maria Karras, presents the genesis and evolution of The Woman's Building, the community of women artists it nurtured and the educational programs it engendered. It juxtaposes an extensive archive of documentary photographs with brief but pithy comments by many of the women in those photographs, who made it all happen and who reveal what the experience meant for them and for other women. As Karras says in her introduction: "This book is for American women and artists, now and in the future, that they may always remember whose shoulders they stand on.
