Getting to the Bottom of ‘Gay Art’

Screen Shot 2013-10-18 at 1.31.42 PM.pngTomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 19, the director of New York’s Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art comes to town to answer the question that most springs to mind after a visit to his boutique SoHo gallery: What Is Gay Art? Hunter O’Hanian gives a PowerPoint presentation featuring selections from the permanent collection of his museum, the first in the world dedicated to gay art and the artists who create it. O’Hanian will talk over refreshments at the offices of the gay Catholic organization Dignity Washington.

Saturday, Oct. 19, at 2 p.m. Dignity Washington Center, 721 8th St. SE. Free, but donations welcome. Call 202-546-2235 or visit DignityWashington.org
