Marilyn Minter is a visual artist and a professor at the School of Visual Arts. She is 68 years old, born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. Her most popular exhibit "Pretty/Dirty" is on view in the Brooklyn Museum.
Originally, Minter's work was rejected by feminists because they thought it objectified the female body. Now, though, it is becoming more and more popular because "it's rational". Feminism is beginning to become more popular, and it's now including men and women of color. Minter is a feminist who has always told people (especially women) to do what they feel right and comfortable doing, even though people didn't always agree with that.
