For the past five years, the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art has continued to fulfill its commitment to the past, present, and future of feminist art. Using its award-winning exhibition and education spaces, the Sackler Center strives to raise awareness of feminism’s cultural contributions. Dialogue and debate about feminist art, theory, and activism take place in the Sackler Center’s Forum, and groundbreaking exhibitions are held in its Feminist Art and Herstory galleries. The Council for Feminist Art, a membership group enjoying the benefits of special events, supports the ongoing educational programming and the continuing success of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The Sackler Center has attracted more than half a million visitors since it opened in March of 2007. The only public space of its kind in the United States, the dramatic 8,000-square-foot award-winning space was designed by architect Susan T. Rodriguez, a partner in Ennead Architects.
