CONVERGE Venue Statement

The LGBT Community of Greater Cleveland is pleased to partner with Artist Archives (AAWR) of the Western Reserve to highlight the creativity and contributions of local LGBTQ artists who have always been included as part of the cultural fabric of the Western Reserve. The upcoming exhibit will be a celebration of the legacy of the LGBTQ’s community within the visual arts. The stories artists tell will range from protest, pride, and transformation to simple joy in the act of creation.

As an established anchor organization in the Gordon Square Arts District and as one of the first established LGBT Community Center’s in the nation it is an honor to work with AAWR Executive Director Mindy Tousley and additional talented artists, activist Kelly Pontoni, Mark Yasenchack, Tony Williams, and Sam Butler. We believe the partnership with AAWR and the exhibit is aligned and in support of our efforts to achieve our mission to, “Enrich the lives of the diverse LGBTQ+ community through advocacy, support, education, and celebration.”
