Celebrating LGBTQ artists

Albright College will host a free lecture “Stonewall Era Art: the Rise of Queer Visibility” on March 4 at 4 p.m., in the college’s Center for the Arts Klein Lecture Hall.

In honor of the nearly 51 years since the Stonewall Riots, this presentation will explore some of the artists and movements that surrounded and empowered the LGBTQ community leading up to and after the riots, when the community we knew began to slowly change into what we know today. This lecture will be presented by Liz Bradbury, M.F.A., of the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.
