Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach presents Unshaped, a group exhibition of LGBTQ artists
The Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach presents Unshaped, a group exhibition of LGBTQ+ artists exploring the confines of mediums and concepts, asking for conversation on the physical and psychological boundaries we create and inherit.
The show will take place in the museum’s Spotlight gallery for the month of June in conjunction with Pride Month opening on Friday June 7th with a reception beginning at 6pm in tandem with the First Friday Art Walk. Unshaped will be on view until the June 29th, 2019.
The featured artists identify as LGBTQ+, a demographic still marginalized both in public and in the museum space. This show is a reaction to a large part of art exhibitions still showcasing nearly exclusively white/male/heterosexual-identifying artists. Just as importantly, it wishes to bring focus to up-and-coming artists using out-of-the-box approaches to their practice.
Unshaped continues the Spotlight Gallery’s mission to foster connection and conversation amongst the artists and their community by allowing underserved and unseen art to be “spotlighted” and given a chance to be appreciated.
The Cornell Art Museum works to the collaborate with local are groups to curate, manage and promote art exhibitions to support and benefit non-profit children’s groups, student groups, art education groups, art scholarship organizations and other artists groups.
