Thursday May 24, 2018 — Pop Art: From Andy Warhol to Keith Haring
There’s a reason it’s called POP! The 1960s images of the Pop Art movement were so cross cultural and cross generational that nearly everyone had some hanging on their wall, emblazoned on their T-shirts, and in their local museums. The superstar founder of the movement, Andy Warhol, was totally, unabashedly out as a Gay man. And many other Queer artists of the time were making work you’ll recognize as well. 15 years later Keith Haring (who grew up in Kutztown) used his Pop Art images to speak out against racism, poverty, and hate and helped unite the fight against AIDS. Learn more about them and other Pop artists in this class.
All are welcome to come make new friends and enjoy some tabletop gaming. Do you have a game you love to play? Bring it along! We will have a selection of games to play and light refreshments. Come get your game on. Gamers under 14 will need parental/guardian accompaniment. Please let email@example.com know if you are planning to attend so we can have enough seats for everyone.
The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson on May 31, 2018 at 7pm. The screening is free to attend and is followed by a talk back facilitated by Margo Hobbs, Associate Professor of Art History at Muhlenberg College.
Packed in a Trunk uncovers the story of artist Edith Lake Wilkinson, committed to an asylum in 1924 and never heard from again. We follow the journey of Edith’s great-niece as she pieces together the mystery of Edith’s life and returns her work to Provincetown.
Born in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1868, Edith moved to New York by herself in 1888 to study at the Art Students’ League. During the next 3 decades, she lived on the upper west side with a woman named Fannie, travelled to Europe a number of times, and became a part-time resident of Provincetown, Massachusetts. Then, in 1924 she was committed to the Sheppard Pratt Hospital in Baltimore, a sanitarium for the mentally ill; this was quite possibly encouraged by the family lawyer who subsequently siphoned off her funds. Objections had also been raised to Edith’s “close and constant contact” with her longtime companion Fannie. Since Edith’s only sister had died years earlier and her aged parents had recently died under suspicious circumstances, there was no family left to advocate for her. Once she was put away, Edith’s work and all her worldly possessions were packed into trunks and shipped off to her nephew in West Virginia where they sat in an attic collecting dust for the next 40 years. Edith was never heard from again.
Packed in a Trunk is about rescuing the work of lost and gifted souls out of attics and closets and forgotten rooms. It is about being seen.
