The Jewish roots of feminist artist Judy Chicago are the subject of a 2007 retrospective opening in the Samson, Rossetta and Sadie B. Feldman Gallery. Judy Chicago: Jewish Identity presents crucial works from private and public collections that illustrate Jewish themes. Significant works from the “Birth Project” (1980-1985) and the “Holocaust Project” (1985-1993) reveal the scope of Chicago’s interests, along with her other works that range from her feminist images of the cover for Matzoh (unleavened bread) used in the annual Passover ceremony. The exhibit is copyright by Judy Chicago and courtesy of LewAllen Contemporary, Santa Fe, NM.
