About the 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.

Board and Staff

Through the Flower has a small, very active, Board of Directors and staff who — like their predecessors — are committed to educating a broad public about the importance of art and its power in countering the erasure of women’s achievements.
