Chelsea Borgman is a graduate student at Penn State University. Her proposal titled, Inside the Dollhouse was inspired by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro's iconic work, Womanhouse. She will work with a group of teen girls to design and build a physical dollhouse that visually illustrates the students' personal experiences while commenting on current social and political issues that affect their lives.
Judy Chicago Research Portal
As part of her efforts to overcome the erasure that has eclipsed the achievements of too many women, Judy Chicago has placed her archives with three institutions. Her paper archives are at the Schlesinger Library for the History of Women in America at Harvard; her art education archives and "The Dinner Party K-12 curriculum" at the Penn State University Libraries; and her visual archives will be housed at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. These three institutions have collaborated to create the Judy Chicago Portal which will make these archives available worldwide. Click Here
