Resist Erasure: Art by and for 2SLGBTQIA+ Thriving is the newest exhibit at Artists’ Alley at the McKinley Foundation. The exhibit is made up of works by area high school and college students and features two-dimensional original artwork. The exhibited works responds to the current political climate towards the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in light of limiting legislation, book bans, harassment, and more.

There will be an interactive exhibit opening on September 28th.  Fifty hand-numbered copies of an original print by Kadin Henningsen of Meanwhile Letterpress will be available for sale. Attendees can print bookmarks on Henningsen’s mobile letterpress, and can also fill out a blank postcard with a response to be added to the exhibit as part of the “Add Your Voice” component.

Participating artists include Ciaran Carr, Damien Erickson, Harper Morris, Harrison Price, Levi Berkemann, and Rosie Martinez.
