2020 shifted the Museum’s plans of hosting gallery exhibitions and in-person programming. Instead, we’ve produced online events and public art initiatives, made virtual space to gather, and found ways to continue our mission. While we have embraced new opportunities to present multifaceted queer art virtually — welcoming diverse audiences from around the globe — we are also increasingly aware of the importance of our Museum space as an indispensable resource for our audiences. We thank you for your support throughout this year and look forward to being able to welcome you back into our Museum’s physical space in the new year.
On February 6, 2021, the Museum plans to reopen to the public with two new, stellar exhibitions. Show And Tell, the first retrospective of the groundbreaking photography of Laura Aguilar in New York; and Dissolution, the inaugural exhibition of works of art by the 2017-18 and 2018-19 Leslie-Lohman Museum Artist Fellows, will be accompanied by a robust calendar of conversations, readings, and performances. Consider joining as a member or donating one more time this year, and become a part of our momentous reopening.
While we’re still weathering the effects of the pandemic as an institution and a society, the Museum is also facing a time of renewed relevance. We have also been examining our plans to be ever more expansive and inclusive in the art we present. Art offers alternate encounters with our world, invaluable and unusual perspectives, and our Museum provides a whole diversity of audiences important ways to navigate these often terrifying, yet somehow hopeful times. The unique, intersectional lens the Museum applies to the work we do is an aspect of our current and future programs, serving audiences of all ages, with a dedicated eye to serving those most at-risk, including families and queer youth.
We are honored to be able to fulfill our mission every day. And for your continued support, we are infinitely grateful.
