Fireworks flashed through the air. Dreamy, multicolored smoke drifted skyward. 

In Golden Gate Park on Saturday, Oct. 16, as part of a retrospective with the de Young Museum, feminist artist and icon Judy Chicago premiered her exhibition ‘Forever de Young’ in front of a crowd of more than 8,000 people.

The 15-minute pyrotechnic show featured plumes of colorful smoke, along with fireworks.

Here/Say Media’s video team caught the performance, which nodded to Chicago’s decades-long career and use of bright colors as a symbol of feminist power and strength.
