Featuring more than two dozen stylized portraits of LGBTQ pioneers
In conjunction with A Century of Progress, the History Center is pleased to present History Book: LGBTQ Portraits on the second floor of the History Center School House. The History Book exhibit features more than two dozen stylized portraits of LGBTQ pioneers—some local—by acclaimed Chicago artist and designer David Lee Csicsko. Biographical and historical information for the exhibit was developed by LGBTQ historian and author Owen Keehnen. Both Csicsko and Keehnen are inductees of Chicago’s LGBT Hall of Fame.
This activity is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Century of Progress exhibit is also supported with a grant from Michigan Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities. West Shore AWARE has also supported this project with grant funding in 2020-2021.
