On March 5, 2007, approximately 350 attendees joined Otis College of Art and Design and the Skirball Cultural Center for a conversation between Judy Chicago, critically acclaimed artist, author, creator of The Dinner Party, and a founder of the Los Angeles Womans Building; and performance artist and author Suzanne Lacy, chair of Otis College of Art and Designs graduate program in Public Practices.

This intimate conversation on mentorship, art, and feminism, coincided with WACK: Art and the Feminist Revolution, 1965 1980, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The evening celebrated the opening, on March 23, 2007, of a permanent exhibition space for The Dinner Party at Brooklyn Museums Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, and the release of two books: Becoming Judy Chicago by Gail Levin (Harmony Press) and The Dinner Party: Creation to Preservation (Merrell).

Otis Continuing Education Division and the Skirball Cultural Center teamed up to present this unique and personal dialogue between two influential artists, whose career and former relationship as teacher and student, represents both institutions deep commitment to the education of artists and the public.

This event was made possible by the generous support of the Stuart Buchalter Memorial Lecture Fund.

A DVD of the entire conversation can be found in the Otis Library, and an audio podcast can be downloaded through the Otis site at iTunes U.
