Judith K. Brodsky (b. 1933) is a noted artist and art educator. She is a Distinguished Professor Emerita in the Department of Visual Arts at Rutgers, and the Founding Director of the Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper, which was renamed the Brodsky Center in her honor in September 2006.

Over the past thirty years, Brodsky has held numerous leadership positions in the art world, most notably as past national president of ArtTable, the College Art Association, and the Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA). The WCA was established in 1972 as part of the College Art Association to promote equity for women artists and art professionals. Today it remains one of the largest and most influential organizations for women artists, with twenty-seven chapters nationwide. As the first working artist to lead the organization, Brodsky expanded political activism and membership in the WCA.
