Repping rainbow art to ring in a historic Pride weekend
This ain’t your average Pride weekend in NYC. This weekend also marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, the whole reason the month of June has the honor of recognizing LGBTQ history and ringing in its future. This is a moment to reflect—on how far we’ve come, and how far we’ve still got to go. It’s a time for solemnity and celebration. In the spirit of the latter, we’ve rounded up a resplendent rainbow of prints to put some pride on your walls.
Debbie Millman’s Imagine That makes a multi-colored impression. Ruben Natal-San Miguel’s Untitled (Balloons) is a brightly-hued mood-booster. (Don’t miss his co-curated show PRIDE, an exhibition of art by 30 LGBTQ artists, including work from 20x200 artist Trey Speegle!) And this Lisa Congdon looker also benefits Brave Trails, an amazing organization and summer camp supporting LGBTQ youth and families. More rainbow art over here!
While adding some colorful intention into your art collection is a fun way to celebrate the strides we’ve made and embrace diversity, we hope you’ll also take the rainbow cue to throw your weight and wallets behind the real warriors. Art is awesome, but there’s a wealth of amazing organizations out there who need your support—Transgender Law Center, Human Rights Campaign, The Trevor Project, and National Black Justice Coalition, to name a few.
