The Judy Chicago Art Education Award funded by Mary Ross Taylor and established in 2011 by Through the Flower honors Judy Chicago and her pioneering work as an art educator. The award is open to scholars, artists, and educators for a project based on primary research incorporating any of the archives that are collaborating in the development of the Judy Chicago Research Portal, which was launched in October 2019. These archives include:
- Penn State University Libraries, Eberly Family Special Collections Library, which houses the Judy Chicago Art Education Collection and The Dinner Party Curriculum Project.
- The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA), Betty Boyd Dettre Library and Research Center, home of the Judy Chicago Visual Archive.
- Harvard University’s Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America which includes letters, papers, and recordings of congressional hearings about The Dinner Party.
Criteria for the completed or proposed project must include evidence of use of one or more of the archives for research or teaching projects. Projects should encompass feminist goals such as understanding and appreciation for the achievements of women, gender equity/justice or the use of Judy Chicago’s participatory art pedagogy informed by feminist principles. The applicant’s project also must include a public presentation such as a lecture, publication or class activity.
The annual award includes a certificate and a $2,500 prize. The award ceremony will be held in Belen, New Mexico at the Through the Flower Art Space. Application deadline is June 1, 2021.
