A People’s Museum of LGBTQ2+ History
is a socially engaged artwork by the art and design collective AK/OK (Kate Jarboe + M. Wright), that creates a queer archive, telling the stories of everyday people.
As a grassroots archive created by hundreds of people, the project is a witness to the ways that lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirit, and queer people are present in all of our lives. The project asks you to remember: Who was the first LGBTQ2+ person you know in your life?
This act of collective memory contains hundreds of drawings and stories - of aunts, uncles, cousins, parents, children, friends, lovers, classmates, teachers, public figures, strangers, and selves. All participants will be credited as artists in the project. — All are welcome!
This exhibition and events could not be possible without the awesome support of the Center for Student Engagement, the Center for Identity and Inclusion, as well as the Painting, Drawing/GFA, Interdisciplinary Sculpture, Graphic Design, Fiber and Illustration departments.
