View the Recording

Amy Fordham, Visual Resources Curator, and Rachel Howard, Digital Initiatives Librarian, will describe the collaboration between the University of Louisville’s Art department and Libraries to create a digital collection of an internationally significant collaborative artwork.

The International Honor Quilt (IHQ) is a collaborative, grassroots feminist art project initiated by Judy Chicago in 1980 "to extend the spirit of The Dinner Party" on its tour of venues throughout North America, Europe, and Australia.  It consists of a collection of 542 individual quilts that can be assembled into a multi-sectional, monumental artwork. After Chicago donated the IHQ to the University of Louisville Hite Art Institute, the Hite and the Libraries launched the digital International Honor Quilt Collection.
