For the closing night of “Picturing Kinship: Portraits of Our Community by Lenore Chinn,” the painter and photographer herself will offer an informal tour of the exhibition. Chinn will share stories about the portraits and their subjects and about the processes and politics of her work during 35 years of depicting San Francisco’s LGBTQ community.

The subjects of the portraits are individuals who have contributed to the diversity of San Francisco’s cultural landscape in such fields as poetry, visual and performing arts, film, rock music, academia, and the LGBTQ movement. The exhibition is curated by Tirza True Latimer, chair of the graduate program in visual and critical studies at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
