“A Queer Look at Brooklyn” Teen Council Exhibition Opening
Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) is pleased to announce the opening of A Queer Look at Brooklyn, an LGBTQ-focused exhibition researched and curated by high school students in BHS’ Spring 2019 Teen Council internship program. On view from May 30, 2019 through May 2020, this exhibition focuses on the evolution of LGBTQ experiences from the 19th century to present day through the lens of struggle, privilege, and acceptance.
We hope that you can join us for the exhibition opening to hear from the students themselves about their work.
Teen Council at Brooklyn Historical Society is generously supported by the Pinkerton Foundation, the Michael Tuch Foundation, Inc. and the Ferriday Fund Charitable Trust. Additional support is provided by BHS education funders: Hearst Foundation, Con Edison, the Morris and Alma Schapiro Fund, the Sterling National Bank Charitable Foundation, the Kinder Morgan Foundation, and Investors Foundation. Programs are also made possible by the New York Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and are supported, in part by public funds from the new York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.
