I wanted to let you know about a talk I am doing at ONE, the national gay and lesbian archives in Los Angeles, as part of the ONE Culture Series. The talk is called The Woman’s Building: An Organization of Our Own. Writer Terry Wolverton and I will be sharing how this historic feminist organization influenced our work and how its impact lives on.

From 1975-1991, I was involved with the Woman’s Building in various roles including student, artist-in-residence, building manager, and board member. It had a profound impact on my life and art. When the Building closed in 1991, its archives went to different places and can be found now at the Getty Research Institute, the Archives of American Art in the Smithsonian, Otis College of Art and Design, and the ONE archives. Though not a lesbian organization per se, the Woman’s Building was a place where feminist, lesbian, and women’s art in general could be explored and made public.

If you are so inclined, join us for a talk and discussion of these exciting and fertile years.
