And She Gathered All before Her
And She made for them A Sign to See
And lo They saw a Vision
From this day forth Like to like in All things
And then all that divided them merged
And then Everywhere was Eden Once again
The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago at Sackler Center for Feminist Art
Imagine hosting a dinner party for 1,038 of the most extraordinary women in history, 39 of whom are honored by individual place settings at a dinner table nearly 150 feet long.
“The Dinner Party” makes this vision into a reality at the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Feminist icon Judy Chicago created this monumental work of art comprised of a triangular table divided by three wings, each 48 feet long.he Dinner Party by Judy Chicago at Sackler Ceter for Feminist Art
