What you'll learn in this tour class:

Remember when feminism happened, and Georgia O’Keeffe kicked butt, and now museums and the art world totally treat male and female artists with equal value? JK JK IT’S STILL SUPER BAD! 

On this two-hour tour of the Art Institute of Chicago, we get three things done:
  1. We celebrate the awesome women who ARE represented
  2. We fill you in on some women you haven’t heard about
  3. We kick some ass - we hack the patriarchy and actually (briefly) raise the percentage of art on view by female artists!
The future is female, and guess what: the past was hella female too. Get ready to join the revolution (or keep revolution-ing, whatever, we support your journey wherever you are).

Refund Policy

No refunds. Rescheduling is allowed 48 hours prior to the tour.

The Art Institute of Chicago: Badass Bitches Tour
Reviewed by Caren K. on 3/1/2020
I really enjoyed the class itself and the information Jessamyn gave us. She was very knowledgeable and presented the information in a very animated and interesting way. I personally did not like all the games. I am not very knowledgeable about art and was thrilled with the interesting, fun way it was presented, but felt kind of put on the spot to interpret something I didn't understand or to be thinking about a picture I needed to take while she was talking about something else. I know she didn't mean it that way AT ALL. Nevertheless, the history and the additional pictures she showed us on her iPad and the way she explained everything was enough for me. I would still definitely recommend it to others.
