The fight to open the Judy Chicago Museum in Belen is making national headlines.
Over the weekend, the New York Times published its own article over the controversy.
Last month, KRQE News 13 first reported on the proposal to open a museum showcasing Chicago’s work. But after members of the public opposed it, Chicago pulled the plug.
Since then, she has decided to move forward on her own.
Mayor Jerah Cordova is also on board, saying he would donate $10,000 – a year’s salary – to make sure the museum is built.
