What is Feminist Art?

Feminist art is not some tiny creek running off the great river of real art. It is not some crack in an otherwise flawless stone. It is, quite spectacularly I think, art which is not based on the subjugation of one half of the species. It is art which will take the great human themes --love, death, heroism, suffering, history itself --and render them fully human. It may also, though perhaps our imaginations are so mutilated now that we are incapable even of the ambition, introduce a new theme, one as great and as rich as those others --should we call it "joy"?.

-Andrea Dworkin

I found this quote and it was too long to tweet, but too good to forget.

And I should note that the OK branch of the Feminist Art Project is interested in supporting all creative women in the state, not only those whose art is feminist in nature. If you know women who are artists in Oklahoma, let us know! We'd love to support them in any way we can.

also...keep watching this space in the next few days for news of an exciting new collaborative art project.

(hint hint- don't you hate cliffhangers?)
