Westbury Arts is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting our very first LGBTQ Pride Month exhibit entitled, “Everyday Pride.” Pride Month often evokes powerful images of celebrations with rainbow flags – but ‘pride’ means many things to different people. This curated, juried art exhibit will feature two-dimensional original works of art that explore how LGBTQ folks express pride on a day-to-day basis. The exhibit will be on display at Nana’s Ice Cream & Coffee House from Tuesday, June 18 through Sunday, June 30. Join us for the opening reception on Tuesday, June 18 at 7pm, which will feature spoken word artists from Pride For Youth, a local service provider for LGBTQ young people.
“Everyday Pride” is the third event in our “Out of Many – One” series, which celebrates the diversity of our community. The exhibit features artwork by Felix Brow-Westbrook, Kasey Martin, Cindy Murphy, Jackie Pardo, Dr. Nichelle Rivers, and Erica Snyder. The opening reception will feature spoken word artists Hannah Kussman, Dani Mason, Emily Orgill, and Rick Wilson.
This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Huntington Arts
