Join us Monday, November 2, from 6-8 pm for the second in a series of four virtual public programs spotlighting the vibrant third cohort of the Leslie- Lohman Museum’s Artist Fellowship.
Each of the four fellowship events will feature a short artists’ talk by three Fellows, followed by a discussion with a curator, art historian, or writer. Since its inception, the Artist Fellowship, led by director Ela Troyano, has centered queer artists of color from a wide range of cultural experience.
For this event, the presenting artists include Arantxa Araujo, Heather Marie Scholl and Fernando Vieira in conversation with Richard Morales. Morales is the Manager of Community Partnerships at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center (The Center) where he curates their arts exhibits and cultural programming. Prior to joining The Center, he was the Manager of Public Programs and Engagement at El Museo del Barrio where he sourced Latinx/Latin American artists and scholars to create a robust series of programming that engaged the community in interactive experiences. Morales currently serves on the Board of Directors for Teatro Círculo, NYC and on the advisory board for the podcast Making Gay History.
