“The factual, insightful, but also miraculous story of a woman who is not only an individual but an energy field; an artist who is not only a creator but an organizer of communal creation. Without downplaying the pain and censure that come with enlarging history by refusing to fit into it, Levin shows us the joy and permanence of Chicago’s inclusive art that opens eyes, minds, and hearts.”—Gloria Steinem

“A vivid and compelling biography of Judy Chicago, as well as a colorful narrative of the artist’s struggles to create a feminist art and to transform the lives of women artists in an art world hostile to their endeavors. A superb critical study of Judy Chicago’s art.”—Arthur C. Danto, art critic,
The Nation

“Gracefully written and prodigiously researched, this is a fascinating and important contribution.”—Joyce Antler, author of
The Journey Home: How Jewish Women Shaped Modern America

“A fascinating confluence of biography and cultural history inspired by personal aspiration, radical politics, avant-garde art, and the women’s movement. Rich in new research and insights, Levin’s work is a valued and much overdue addition to the literature on Judy Chicago.”—Susan Fisher Sterling, Director, National Museum of Women in the Arts

“A landmark work, painstakingly detailed, psychologically sophisticated, that constitutes a fair-minded—and therefore explosive—guide to the art world, including the relationships among wealth, patronage, and artistic success and viability.”—Phyllis Chesler, author of
Women and Madness
