The Elmhurst Art Museum is partnering with local non-profit Elmhurst Pride Collective to celebrate pride month. As part of the collective, the museum has pledged to provide a safe and welcoming place for all employees and customers, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, or disability.
This week’s guide will briefly explore the work of LGBTQIA+ artists, curators, and scholars as well as unpack how we talk about their work today.
Our From Home activity encourages you to embrace the ‘&’ that makes you, you! Create your own non-binary, chimera butterfly to explore the different components of your identity.
We support the Elmhurst Pride Collective and their mission to foster and promote a safe and inclusive environment for all. They are bringing together a wide array of local businesses, organizations, and neighbors who share our goals and are committed to making Elmhurst a welcoming place to live, learn, and grow. On Pride Month join the Collective and take their inclusion pledge.
Check out our Museum Store for Project Watches, Pride 2020 watch from architect and designer, Alex Donahue. It features six colors that continually move about the face. Twice a day, at both noon and midnight, the colors come together to create the shape of a rainbow.
