Exhibition Opening: Queer Abstraction

6/1/2019 / 7:00pm

Co-presented by Art Noir.

The Art Center, along with our member group, Art Noir, invites you to celebrate the opening of our exhibition, Queer Abstraction. This show is the first in the Art Center’s 70-year history to focus exclusively on LGBTQ art and artists, and we’re excited to kick off Pride month with a party full of music and dancing for all ages! Enjoy the art of Queer Abstraction, create your own works of art with local LGBTQ artists, and dance the night away.

The Art Center will be transformed like you’ve never seen it before and will include a pop-up installation by a local artist for you to capture the moment with a selfie. Delicious bites, sweet confections, and a complimentary coffee bar will be provided. Refreshing, art-inspired cocktails will be served in the courtyard by the reflecting pool. Put on your most creative attire and come for a celebration that is entirely unexpected!

This event is FREE and all are welcome. Reservations encouraged. Free parking; cash bar; drive responsibly.
