ABOUT THE LESLIE/LOHMAN GAY ART FOUNDATION
Described by Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times art critic Holland Cotter as “…a thoroughly nonmainstream pearl beyond price,” the LESLIE/LOHMAN GAY ART FOUNDATION (LLGAF) is a non-profit foundation established to provide an outlet for artwork that is unambiguously gay and which is often denied access to mainstream venues. Founded in 1990, the Foundation mounts exhibitions of art in all media by gay and lesbian artists emphasizing subject matter that speaks to queer sensibilities, including works with erotic, political, romantic and social imagery. LLGAF also provides special support for emerging and underrepresented artists through The ARCHIVE (a quarterly art journal) and a permanent collection of more than 3,000 works, including pieces by artists Duncan Grant, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Jean Cocteau and Robert Mapplethorpe. Leslie/Lohman is the premier resource for anyone interested in the rich art legacy of the LGBTQ community and its influence on and confrontation with the mainstream art world.
