Due to crowds on opening weekend, The Dinner Party cell phone tour was inactive to give as many visitors as possible a chance to see installation without too long of a wait.
The tour is now active, so if you are coming to the exhibition, bring your phone! The tour includes commentary from Judy Chicago, various curators, scholars, educators, and others. Using the system is as easy as dialing a telephone number and then selecting the code that corresponds to The Dinner Party component you wish to hear about. The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago Cell Phone Gallery Guide is free of charge.
All the audio on each of the 39 place settings is also available on our Web site.
