LINDA M. GRASSO, professor of English at York College and of Liberal Studies at the Graduate Center, CUNY, will discuss her new book, Equal Under The Sky: Georgia O’Keeffe and Twentieth-Century Feminism. Equal Under the Sky is the first historical study of the artist’s complex involvement with, and influence on, U.S. feminism from the 1910s to the 1970s. The women’s movements that impacted the creation and reception of O’Keeffe’s art, Grasso argues, explain why she is a national icon who is valued for more than her artistic practice.
This event will be held at the Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue (34th Street). It is free and open to the public. For more information see the Women’s Studies website: http://www.gc.cuny.edu/womencenter\
