Judy Chicago collaborated with more than 150 needle workers between 1980 and 1985 to create dozens of images combining painting and needlework that celebrate the birth process – from the painful to the mythical. Sometimes witty and always original, this series celebrates the birth-giving capacity of women along with their creative spirit. Birth Project works have been exhibited in over 100 venues around the country.
Judy Chicago was born on July 20, 1939 in Chicago, Illinois. She is an artist, author, feminist, educator, and intellectual whose career now spans five decades. Gloria Steinem stated in Interview magazine (2017), “Chicago is not only a pioneer of feminist art; she is arguably its founder, inventor, and chief figurehead.” She lives and works in Belen, New Mexico.
