Insurgent Muse
Life and Art at the Woman's Building

  • Top 100 Books of 2002, Los Angeles Times Book Review

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).
