THE CULTURAL IMPACT OF PAINTING & PRINTED MEDIA:
Artist lecture & creative lab

We ensure our histories are not lost by documenting them and Lenore Chinn has been documenting the broader LGBTQ community in San Francisco for over 30 years. Her larger photo-realist paintings began as community portraits, of her friends really, and are now a beautiful and sometimes haunting history. Lenore wraps up this series of workshop with a special artist lecture. She’ll discuss some of the highlights of her career as a painter and social justice founder of some of the most influential LGBTQ and Asian arts organizations in the Bay Area including the Lesbians in the Visual Arts, Queer Cultural Center, and Asian American Women Artists.

We’ll include an open Q&A section to open up the floor for conversation. Also view printed works inspired by the stories from the Dragonfruit Project and see works from other LGBTQ AAPI artists. The lecture will immediately be followed by an open creative lab where we’ll provide materials to create works around the LGBTQ AAPI communities and stories. You’ll see art that’s already been created and share space with other working artists. This is a great opportunity to share creative space with other working LGBTQ AAPI artists.

PROVIDED: A variety of creative materials will be provided to create works in class paper, pens, scanner, printer, glue, tape, scissors, etc.
