Celebrating Gay Pride Month

Selected early works from the Xavier Cortada’s “Male Torso” series will be displayed outside the artist’s studio in the Bakehouse Art Complex during June 2016.  Cortada painted the series in 1996-97.  The exhibit celebrates Gay Pride Month 2016, honoring the advances made by the LGBTQ Community in the two decades since the works were completed.  There’s still work to be done as society continues pushing forward to bring full equality to all.
