THIRTEEN's NYC-ARTS Explores the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art This December
On December 12, NYC-ARTS will feature a look at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art dedicated to providing a platform for artistic exploration through multi-faceted LGBTQ perspectives located in SoHo.
Formerly known as the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, the museum was founded by Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman, who hosted their first art exhibition featuring gay artists in 1969. The couple continued to collect and exhibit the work of gay artists while supporting the Soho community through the 1970s and 1980s. With a collection of over 30,000 works by LGBTQ artists, the museum also hosts six major exhibitions annually, offers several public programs throughout the year, maintains a vast research library, and publishes an arts newsletter.
NYC-ARTS, THIRTEEN's weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase, brings arts lovers an all-access pass to the interesting, unusual and unique cultural offerings of the greater New York City region.
Co-hosted by New York Emmy Award winners Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn, NYC-ARTS showcases both world-renowned and local, community-based arts organizations.
