Theodora in Brooklyn, NY

Judy Chicago, The Dinner Party, 1974-1979

It’s no secret that I adore everything about Judy Chicago. Twenty eight years ago today, when I named my daughter Theodora, I didn’t know much about Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party, or the Empress Theodora. Read here to learn more about both. Turns out I could not have chosen a better name for my daughter.

  1. Love this. Love Judy Chicago. I had gone deep into some of the other plates, but not this one. Thank you.
