New York Panel on Patrick Angus and J. B. Harter (Video)

The John Burton Harter Foundation sponsored a panel discussion with the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art on September 28, 2022, to celebrate the release of A Tale of Two Cities: Patrick Angus in New York and J. B. Harter in New Orleans.

Panelists included Elizabeth McGowan, Executive Director of Visual AIDS; Gio Black Peter, a visual and performance artist; and Correy Serrant, cataloguer with Swann Auction Galleries. Dan Cameron, an art curator, moderated the event.

Both conversations explored how the contrasting backgrounds and shared experiences of these artists shaped their unique visions, as well as implications and opportunities for queer artists today.

The illustrated catalog showcases the vibrancy of the gay community through the art of Angus and Harter.

A similar panel discussion in New Orleans about these two artists helped launch Pride Month in June 2022.
