About Millie Wilson: The Museum of Lesbian Dreams

The first retrospective exhibition showcasing three decades of Millie Wilson’s work (United States, b. 1948). An influential, yet underrecognized, artist and pedagogue who taught generations of artists at the California Institute of the Arts (following a brief stint teaching at the University of Illinois School of Art & Design), Wilson has deftly examined feminism, queerness, and the historical erasure of such positions from institutions of art.
