OCT 23 Gallery Talk: Judy Chicago—The End

Ready for a heavy lunch? 

Express lunchtime talks—30 minutes or fewer—are offered most Wednesdays. Facilitated by museum staff members, these conversation-driven thematic talks highlight three to six works on view.

This week, NMWA Exhibition Coordinator Hannah Shambroom discusses a sampling of works in Judy Chicago—The End: A Meditation on Death and Extinction


Judy Chicago has built her career on pushing boundaries. Her latest body of work, a series titled The End: A Meditation on Death and Extinction, is no exception. In nearly 40 works of painted porcelain and glass, as well as two large bronze sculptures, Chicago tackles human mortality and species extinction.
