Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, and organized by the Columbus Museum of Art ( CMA ), "Art After Stonewall, 1969-1989" will be at CMA March 6-May 31.

The exhibit debuted in 2019 in New York City before traveling to The Patricia & Philip Frost Art Museum in Miami.

"Bringing together works by a remarkably diverse group of artists and activists who lived and worked at the intersections of avant-garde art worlds, radical political movements and profound social change, Art after Stonewall is a testament to their spirit of fearlessness, joy and boundless creativity," a press release noted.

"Art after Stonewall, 1969-1989" focuses on both the work of openly LGBTQ artists—including David Hockney, Harmony Hammond, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Tseng Kwong-Chi, Robert Gober, Louise Fishman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Greer Lankton, David Wojnarowicz, Lyle Ashton Harris, Catherine Opie, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Martin Wong, Vaginal Davis and Scott Burton—as well as the practices of straight-identified artists seeking engagement with queer subcultures, such as Alice Neel, Vito Acconci, Lynda Benglis, Judy Chicago, Barkley L. Hendricks, Gordon Matta-Clark and Louise Bourgeois. The exhibit is also a reflection of CMA's commitment to the central Ohio LGBTQ community.

General admission is free ( only on Sundays )-$18/person; call 614-221-6801 or visit ColumbusMuseum.org .
