Adventures in feminist art
This one got a little wordy, so click on it to enlarger & read. The Dinner Party was actually really interesting, incorporating traditional feminine handcrafts- embroidery, china painting, weaving, etc- into a piece of very political (particularly at the time) art; plus there's always the fun of recognizing the names and discussing who'd be at your own dinner party. Some of the other pieces on display... well,at the very least Disney wouldn't be pleased.
