More about this exhibit:
ArtScape is an installation of work presented by Winter Party and benefiting the National LGBTQ Task Force highlighting out & proud LGBTQ+ artists throughout South Florida and beyond. In this present climate, simply to be out is still an act of provocation and art has continued to be, as Oscar Wilde put it, “the most intense mode of individualism the world has ever known.”
Our vision is to bridge the gap between LGBTQ+ artists and the mainstream art world while raising much-needed visibility and funds for the LGBTQ+ community.
