I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.
A Celebration for the Ages Honoring Legacies of Lorri L. Jean and Darrel Cummings
Lorri L. Jean and Darrel Cummings were celebrated by more than 400 guests at the April 9 Legacy Celebration which raised more than $700,000 for Center programs and services.
Lily Tomlin, Kathy Griffin, Wilson Cruz, and U.S. Congressman Adam Schiff made live or video appearances during the event.
“Together we have not only made history, we have made miracles happen,” Jean said in a speech at the end of the night. “Leading the Center for so long has been the greatest honor of my life. That I have been privileged to spend these decades with people like you has been the greatest joy.”
