The History of Through the Flower

Through the Flower was founded by Judy Chicago in 1977 as a 501(c)3 non- profit organization to manage the overwhelming public support of The Dinner Party (1974-1979).  Since its inception, Through the Flower's activities have focused on education and continues to engage in numerous initiatives aimed at providing opportunities for learning about women's history through art.

Thank you to our many supporters who, through giving their time, expertise, and donations, helped us to open the Through the Flower Art Space.
