Warrior of Hope

Lester Blum

 

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.

Opening Reception: July 24, 6pm - 8pm

On the Domestic Front: Scenes of Everyday Queer Life

Curated by James M. Saslow

 

On the Domestic Front features over 80 works from the Leslie-Lohman Museum collection and a few strategic loans reveal much about the social history of LGBT life today, yesterday, and nearly a century before yesterday and answers the question, "What do gay people do when they're not having sex?"


This exhibition is timely in a decade that has seen the unprecedented mushrooming of gay marriage, child-rearing, and domesticity, and increasing acceptance both legally and socially. The thrust of queer politics has shifted from asserting our right to be different and erotic toward demanding the rights of everyone else. The show will contribute to a long-running socio-political debate within the LGBTQ world: are we, apart from our sexuality, “just like everyone else.”

Opening Reception: August 14, 6 - 8 pm
