Publisher Comments:

In the 1970s, the West Coast feminist art movement coalesced around the Woman’s Building in Los Angeles, founded by artist Judy Chicago. Arriving as a young art student in 1976, Terry Wolverton stayed on to become a teacher and co-founder of the Lesbian Art Project, and eventually, executive director. Her journey—emblematic of many women who sought to redefine themselves in the light of feminism—entails confrontation with the damages of sexism, the pitfalls of utopian community, and the forces of social backlash.

Terry Wolverton is the author of the novel Bailey’s Beads, two collections of poetry, Black Slip and Mystery Bruise. She has also edited numerous anthologies of gay and lesbian fiction, including His and Hers (Vols I-III).

Review:

"Founded in 1973 by Judy ("The Dinner Party") Chicago, among others, the Building is an outgrowth of the feminist art movement in California....Insurgent Muse, [Wolverton's] memoir of this period is also a piece of art history." Gay & Lesbian Review

Book News Annotation:

Written by a former director and student who was involved in the Women's Building in Los Angeles and the Lesbian Art Project there from the 1970s until it closed in 1991, this memoir will appeal especially to lesbians and those interested in the roots of the women's art movement. Not indexed.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

An artist's memoir of her years at the Woman's Building, pivotal institution of West Coast cultural feminism.
