“It’s exciting,” said Tom Campbell, director of the San Francisco Art Museums. “Listen, we’re a city museum. We’re here to serve the community, so it’s really fun when we can do something so festive and so accessible to everyone. It’s really great to do it.

Campbell said Chicago’s work has focused on the environment since the 1970s.

“Back then there were a lot of artists – mostly male artists who literally sculpted the landscape – landscape art. And Judy wanted to do something lighter, that would be fleeting, non-toxic, non-invasive, ”Campbell said. “Throughout her career, she continued to be very concerned about the environment.

Judy Chicago: A Retrospective exhibition, which includes dozens of paintings, ceramic sculptures and drawings, will be on display until January 9, 2022 at the de Young Museum.
