Celebration of LGBT art at Brighton's Jubilee Library as part of Pride
11:20am Wednesday 31st July 2013 in News
As the city warms up for Brighton Pride, an art exhibition has opened to celebrate LGBT art.
Brighton Pride's Art Exhibition ICONS officially opened at the Jubilee Library on July 24 with a private view hosted by comedienne Zoe Lyons.
The exhibition has been organised by Brighton-based Thirteen Art Productions and is a central part of Pride’s first ever Arts and Film Festival, which covers multiple aspects of LGBT art, culture and lifestyle.
A selection of talented artists from the LGBT community, and their supporters, have produced a mix of artwork which is showing alongside some exclusive and original posters by American pop artist Keith Haring, donated by The Keith Haring Foundation in New York.
Artist and organiser Hizze Fletcher said: “We are all so overwhelmed by the support of The Keith Haring Foundation and the interest that has been generated around this event.
“It is a great opportunity to showcase the talents of the LGBT artistic community and their supporters.”
The event has so far raised more than £2,000 for Pride and The Rainbow Fund, a charitable fund for the benefit of the LGBT community in Brighton and Hove and to help maintain the Brighton and Hove AIDS Memorial.
The exhibition is open until tomorrow.
