Dr. Frima Fox Hofrichter, a member of CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts, has been appointed to CAA’s Jury to select the recipient of the Distinguished Feminist Award. She will serve a three-year term ending in 2013.

The Distinguished Feminist Award is the newest award created by CAA and honors a person who, through his or her art, scholarship, or advocacy, has advanced the cause of equality for women in the arts. It has had only 2 recipients: the Guerrilla Girls (2009) and art historian, Griselda Pollock (2010).
