The Dinner Party, Judy Chicago
The Brooklyn Museum is a legitimate tourist draw for a variety of reasons, but one of the best reasons to go there is for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. In the Sackler Center, you'll find Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party, which has been part of the Museum's permanent collection since 2007, and works both as a thought- and conversation-provoking work of art, but also as a history lesson. And, really, isn't travel and tourism about education? Yes, it is. And most people haven't had enough of an education when it comes to feminist icons. So go check out The Dinner party and expand your mind while you look at plates that each bear a pretty strong resemblance to the all-powerful vagina.
