Rags and Riches

June 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am


June 10 – July 10 @ Maggi Peyton Gallery

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, Rags and Riches is an exhibition celebrating the vitality of the LGBTQIA art and performance community. A family gathering of sorts, the exhibition is organized around the diverse photographic works of Jean Sonderand, whose behind-the-scenes views into drag, theater, dance, and performance art spaces reveal the grace, humor, and intimacy of the queer-arts community. Featured alongside this archive are a number of artists seen in the images themselves, who have been invited to exhibit a variety of artworks, including paintings, poetry, and personal ephemera, opening a door between the public and private experiences that blossom between members of the LGBTQIA community.

Please join us at Maggi Peyton gallery on June 10th at 6pm for the opening reception of Rags and Riches, hosted by and located within the Manhattan Borough President’s Office at 1 Centre St. on the 19th Floor.

Note: Enter the municipal building through the South entrance. FYI, there is a security checkpoint for bags and a metal detector. The gallery is located just off the lobby of the President’s Office.
