Through the Flower is a non-profit Feminist art organization founded by Judy Chicago in 1978. Our mission is to educate a broad public about the importance of art and its power in countering the erasure of women's achievements.
In Memory of Gillian Hanna (1944 - 2019)
Actress and wife of Diane Gelon, President of the Board of Through the Flower. Diane and Gillian met through The Dinner Party as a result of Gillian's work to bring the piece to London and Edinburgh.

On Friday, September 20, 2019, at 6:00 pm Through the Flower Art Space will host its second Flower Friday event Judy Chicago: The Birth Project Film Screening and Discussion. This evening will consist of a film screening of Judy Chicago: The Birth Project (TRT 20 minutes) and a discussion after the film with Birth Project needleworker Pat Rudy-Baese. She will talk about her experience working on the Birth Project and answer questions from the audience. Judy Chicago collaborated with more than 150 needleworkers during the Birth Project to create dozens of images combining painting and needlework that celebrate various aspects of the birth process; from the painful to the mythical. The Piece that Rudy-Baese worked on, Birth Tear/Tear, is currently on view at The Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, NM, as part of the exhibition Judy Chicago: The Birth Project From New Mexico Collections which runs through November 10, 2019.
