From the Wo/Manhouse website:
"This year marks the 50th anniversary of Womanhouse, the first openly Feminist art installation, which opened in 1972 in Los Angeles as part of the first Feminist art program, originally established by Judy Chicago at California State University, Fresno, then expanded at Cal-Arts. The goal of the program was to help young women realize their ambitions as artists without having to excise evidence of their gender from their work, something Judy Chicago had been forced to do in order to succeed as an artist in the male-centered L.A. art scene.
Through the Flower will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Womanhouse with an historical exhibition at the Through the Flower Art Space in Belen and contemporary re-envisioning of Womanhouse in a nearby mid-century house. Megan Malcom-Morgan, Executive Director of Through the Flower, has organized a team of community volunteers who have been involved in the planning of this exciting project. Both shows will open on June 18th and run through the summer."
