Ida Applebroog (born 11 November 1929 in the Bronx, New York) is a multi-media artist best known for her paintings and sculptures that explore themes of gender, sexual identity, violence and politics. In 1973, she participated in the Feminist Artists Conference of the California Institute of the Arts, which saw the birth of The Feminist Art Movement in the United States, whose goal is the study, creation, understanding and promotion of art produced by women. Applebroog has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the MacArthur Fellowship "Genius Grant", the College Art Association Distinguished Art Award for Lifetime Achievement and an honorary doctorate in Fine Arts from the New School for Social Research/Parsons School of Design.
