Kate Millett has been a well-known figure in the feminist movement since the publication of her book "Sexual Politics" in 1970. She is less well-known as a sculptor, though she has been working in the field since the early 1960s.
"Kate Millett, Sculptor: The First 38 Years" opens today at the Fine Arts Gallery of the University of Maryland Baltimore County and is billed as the first major retrospective of the artist's work. It will range from works created in Japan and the "Furniture Suite," both from the 1960s, through the installations of more recent years.
The show opens with a 5 p.m. reception at the gallery today, followed by a 7:30 p.m. lecture by Millett in the Fine Arts Recital Hall. There will also be lectures by art historian Arlene Raven, at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Fine Arts Building Room 306; and by activist Angela Davis, at 8 p.m. March 7 in the Fine Arts Recital Hall.
The show is at the Fine Arts Gallery of University of Maryland Baltimore County, 1000 Hilltop Circle, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, through April 5. Call (410) 455-3188.
