Details: Based on experience
The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art is the first dedicated LGBTQ art museum in the world with a mission to exhibit and preserve LGBTQ art, and foster the artists who create it. Prior to its status as a museum, the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation was established in 1987 by Charles W. Leslie and Fritz Lohman who have supported LGBTQ artists for over 30 years. The Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with official accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums.
The Museum offers 5-6 major exhibitions a year, film screenings, performances, poetry readings, artist and curator talks, and panel discussions. Other exhibitions and gallery spaces include #QueerPower, an annual commission that supports and expands the work of socially committed artists whose work fosters social and environmental justice, and the Prince St. Project Space, the Museum’s satellite gallery which hosts the Charles Leslie Drawing Studio and other smaller exhibitions.
The Museum has a collection of over 30,000 works, and an artist archive that contains information on over 2,000 LGBTQ artists—both those represented in the collection and others of interest to LGBTQ audiences.
