I'm annoyed to hear that the Smithsonian's "Hide/Seek
" exhibit of queer art is drawing criticism
, which has already resulted in the museum pulling down one of the items.
Poke a censor in the eye by:
* contacting the Smithsonian
to thank them for hosting the "Hide/Seek" exhibit.
* sending a donation to the Smithsonian
to support the "Hide/Seek" exhibit; ask them for more of the same.
* checking out the networking menu on the Smithsonian's main page
and connecting with them on your favorite social networks; post about the "Hide/Seek" exhibit.
* linking to "Hide/Seek" on your blog or other venue.
* hosting a discussion about controversial imagery in art.
* posting about other examples of queer art, artists, or people.
Are you some flavor of non-vanilla sexually, and an artist or other creative person? Do you render queer people responsibly in your art, fiction, or other work? Are you a queer patron of the arts, or a patron of queer arts? If so, you're invited to comment with a discussion and/or links that contribute to the recognition of sexual diversity in the arts.
