Leslie-Lohman Speakers Series
We are proud to announce the official launch of the Leslie-Lohman Speakers Series. This newly established ongoing series of lectures will offer a minimum of one lecture per quarter with a focus on creating an environment and opportunity for studio based artists to interact with a public audience of diverse backgrounds, encouraging a dialogue between artist and audience. Lectures are free, and open to the public.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Be sure to check our website (LeslieLohman.org) for updates and additions to our tours and lectures.

Warrior of Hope
The Warrior of Hope
“Such is hope, heaven’s own gift to struggling mortals, pervading, like some subtle essence from the skies, all things both good and bad.” Charles Dickens (1812-1870)
The Warrior emerged as the personification of Hope from the chaos of the world to offer hope for all against disease, inequality, and injustice. He honors those who fought the HIV/AIDS battle and lost as well as offering solace to those currently fighting the war with hope for a time when the ravages of the disease will be eradicated from the earth.
Inequality pervades our society. The Warrior offers hope so that we and future generations will be able to live in a harmonious world. His quest is to offer freedom of mind and heart to everyone. Until that day, the Warrior of Hope will continue to raise his staff on behalf of all.
