BELEN—The Judy Chicago Art Education Award, funded by MaryRoss Taylor, is an annual award given by Through the Flower that honors Judy Chicago and her pioneering work as an art educator. Submissions will be accepted through March 31, 2024.
Winners are awarded a certificate and a $2,500 prize. The award is open to scholars, educators and students creating educational projects using any of the archives included in the Judy Chicago Research Portal.
This year, the award honors “Judy Chicago: Herstory,” a landmark retrospective that opened at the New Museum, New York, in October 2023, and was extended until March 3, 2023.
The Judy Chicago Art Education Award will be given to projects related to and inspired by the “City of Ladies,” an exhibition within the exhibition that contextualizes the work of Chicago as both an artist and a cultural historian while presenting an alternative to the patriarchal canon that has dominated art and cultural history.
Proposals for the 2023 Judy Chicago Art Education Award should draw on the themes of institutional critique, the erasure or omittance of work by marginalized groups, and the notion of an alternative canon by which all historic contributions should be evaluated.
