Admission: $5.00; Free for members

A new exhibition offering a 35-year overview of portraits in painting and photography by San Francisco artist Lenore Chinn. Her work depicts a wide spectrum of women and men, people of color and the LGBTQ community. The subjects are largely individuals who have contributed to San Francisco’s cultural landscape in fields ranging from poetry to visual and performing arts, film, rock music, academia and the LGBTQ movement. They have been pioneers in creating visibility for queer communities — and Lenore’s portraits of them constitute a reflection of LGBTQ experience that has been largely invisible in mainstream narratives of contemporary art. The opening will feature comments from the artist along with light refreshments. “Picturing Kinship” runs through September 18 at the GLBT History Museum.
