Da Vinci Art Alliance - DVAA is proud to present "Civil Disobedience: Celebrating Queer Narratives," an exhibition of artwork by Philadelphia artists which celebrates the resilience of the LGBTQ+ community.

Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, this summer, Lightbox Film Center will feature a series of films featuring this pivotal moment in the struggle for LGBTQ civil rights. Just as American history has been broadly shaped by the politics of dissent, affecting everything from our labor laws to foreign policy, protest has continued to shape LGBTQ acceptance and liberation. Along with resistance and protest, the LGBTQ rights movement is also characterized by pride: enduring celebration of identity and love that empowers marginalized and antagonized communities to create change.

In partnership with Lightbox Film Center, Da Vinci Art Alliance - DVAA will curate the related exhibition, "Civil Disobedience: Celebrating Queer Narratives." This group exhibition and call for artwork celebrates the history of queer resilience and protest, art that celebrates a community that is unafraid to speak its mind.
