CHAC Gallery and Northglenn Arts present the exhibit opening “Amor es Amor ” on April 14 from 6 pm-9 pm at Northglenn Arts (1 E. Memorial Pkwy, Northglenn, CO, Community Room I).
“Amor es Amor” is about sharing and celebrating who we are as LGBTQIA+ Chicanos/Latinos, this show is dedicated to dignity, self-respect, pride, uniqueness, and a feeling of cultural rebirth in our community through the arts. “Amor es Amor” is free and open to the public. The exhibit runs from April 14 to June 9, 2023.
“The LGBTQ+ rights movement has made tremendous strides over the past few decades and much of the progress in visibility is thanks to the dedicated work of artists. I am excited for the community to experience and enjoy this show. People will walk away with a sense of pride (and hopefully will purchase a piece of art)!” show curator Lucille Rivera.
Northglenn Arts proudly partners with Chicano Humanities & Arts Council (CHAC) on Northglenn’s indoor public art exhibit space. CHAC is an inclusive community of all creatives that are dedicated to preserving, showcasing, educating, and reflecting the essence of Chicana/o/x, Latina/o/x, and other multicultural/multiracial communities. Northglenn Arts works to provide access to the arts for all people and have chosen to collaborate with CHAC due to its dedication to inclusivity and powerful storytelling.
