Leslie Lohman Museum Hosts Its Second Annual Founder's Day Celebration

The Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art will host it's Second Annual Founder's Day Celebration on Thursday, September 18, 2014 from 6:30PM - 9:00PM.  The event will be at GMHC's Joan Tisch Building in the Peter Krueger Dining room located at 446 West 33rd Street, New York, NY 10001.

Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art was found by Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman over 30 years ago.  They began showing and collecting art in their SoHo loft in 1969 to provide an outlet for gay artists. With an attendance of over 200 people at their first weekend exhibition, they quickly realized there was a need for this type of venue in the community.  The Museum today is accredited by the New York State Board of Regents, the Leslie Lohman Museum embraces the rich creative history of the LGBTQ art community by educating, informing, inspiring, entertaining and challenging all who enter its doors. The Museum brings a new perspective providing viewers with a personal context and insight into artists as individuals as never seen before.
