SAMESEX
June 7-July 12, 2012
The intention of this exhibit is to provide common ground for artists and visitors of diverse backgrounds to come together to view, enjoy, discuss or be exposed to art about being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgender. Sexual orientation was not a prerequisite for artists in this exhibit. All were welcome to submit work that interpreted the theme. The term SameSex is a politically charged, somewhat sterile or safe term, referring to gay rights, marriage and equality. But the art in this exhibit is not sterile. It is flamboyant, funny, beautiful, provocative, surprising and at times tragic. This exhibit contains adult subject matter, parental discretion required.
See some works from this year’s SameSex show in our virtual gallery. Also, in our archives, news from SameSex 2011.
