    Saw this when first in exhibition. Have wondered about why it faded from exhibition and what had become of the plates. You are very right to say it was a very strong statement in the ’70s and to witness this art was quite emotional for this viewer. I am now considering a first visit to the museum. Chicago made a deep, positive impression with her art on my young feminist self.

    This is art people. Don’t get too worked up over it. Sounds more like you’re “scared” of vaginas from reading your posts. You people need to find another outlet for your anger. This is an art post…mmmmkay. lol

    I recall Pastor’s wife at U.C.C. church I was brought up in (born again now) helped, was snubbed later by, I guess, some lady who made vagina plates. I was too young to know what one (vagina) looked like, but reading 2 Kings today, see Israel cursed, last good king Josiah getting rid of “quarters of the male cult prostitutes” and “women who did weaving for Asherah.” Seems like from my youthful imprssions, Obama’s U.C.C. support for partial birth abortion, & his U.C.C. affiliation, PARALLELS…

    That is really good news – I didn’t know that the work is still complete and so well preserved. It has been one of the most important artworks as I’ve study history of arts and feminist art.
