Wall of Art: Guelph Pride 2018

April 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am - July 29, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

White text overlaid on a rainbow photo reads LGBT2Q+ Pride. The photo behind the rainbow overlay is of a large group of people holding up signs that read "gay pride" etc.

Guelph Museums and the Guelph Arts Council are pleased to present the “Wall of Art” juried exhibition series, featuring excellent artists from the LGBT2Q+ Community. This exciting series aims to showcase the breadth of local talent that we have here in Guelph as well as provide artists with a unique opportunity to share their work with a larger audience.

In 2018, Guelph Pride celebrates 15 years of LGBT2Q+ culture and community. Guelph Museums marks this significant moment through an exhibition that advocates for accessibility, inclusivity and historical knowledge among all LGBT2Q+ identified persons and their allies. The exhibition considers LGBT2Q+ human rights, the emergence of the Pride movement and the adoption of the rainbow as a signifier of diversity and inclusion, and Guelph’s own LGBT2Q+ stories. The installation also includes artworks by local LGBT2Q+ artists and allies: Kris Lewis, John McGill, Francis Farwell, S. Korey Steckle, Julianna (JT) Murphy, Thunder Savage, Mike Salisbury, Alisa McRonald, TARAS, and Lorette C. Luzajic.

LGBT2Q+ Pride is presented with Guelph Pride and Guelph Arts Council.
