November 14, 1932 - January 30, 2015 An early pioneer in the feminist art movement, Artist, Sherry Brody was the teaching assistant for Miriam Schapiro at CalArts when Miriam set up the first feminist art program there in the early 1970's. Together they made the iconic "Doll House" now in the collection of the Smithsonian. Sherry also took part in the legendary "Women's House" in Hollywood in 1972. Since then Sherry's work has been exhibited in New York and Los Angeles. She leaves behind her two daughters, Ellen Brody Rothstein and Pamela Brody, and her four grandchildren Daniel, Nathan, Haley and Thatcher of San Francisco. Sherry will always be remembered as a friend to the arts and a guiding light to young artists looking to find their own voice and vision...

I was Sherry's neighbor for 16 years. She loved art and loved life. We lived at the Factory Place lofts in Downtown Los Angeles. No matter how old Sherry was, her spirit always seemed to be about 21 years old. Sitting in the same room with her, her presence elevated the room. She loved art and people who appreciated it. She also talked of her family often. You will be missed Sherry. I'm sure you are already creating something interesting on the other side of this veil. It's all love. I remember one time, Sherry wanted me to go find a new phone cord at Office Depot because she was convinced she didn't need a new phone. It had to be the phone cord she said. I was like...just get a new phone. She told me she liked the phone she had and it just needed a new cord. She saw value and beauty in everything. I learned to appreciate life just the way it is from Sherry. Another funny story was that another neighbor of hers is named Cherry. So, for years, we would ask people, do you mean Cherry or Sherry. People would say...which ever one is the artist. We would say...they both are. You will be missed Sherry, but not forgotten. We all loved you at the Factory Place Lofts. Thanks for being a piece of our Art Collection for so many years.
