Many of you have already discovered the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art page on Facebook, where you can find information about the Center, including details on the current exhibitions Ghada Amer: Love Has No End and Votes for Women, and links to the video from the Guerrilla Girls 2007 Women in the Arts Award Presentation, along with videos and artists’ talks from the Center’s opening weekend last Spring. Also, thanks to Shelley Bernstein, we’ve added some fun interactive applications like feeds to the blog, and events listings on the website, links to the Brooklyn Museum’s Flickr page, and ArtShare, a program that allows fans of the page to view feminist-related artworks in the Brooklyn Museum’s collection, including many of the settings from Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party. Last, but not least, there is a place on the page for fans to share their own links, write reviews, and start threads on the discussion board. Check it out!
