Thursday | Grayscale: Voices of LGBTQ+ Youth

  • Blackbird Arts 1485 Barlow Street Traverse City, MI, 49686 United States (map)

Join Up North Pride as we support Blackbird Arts for their opening reception of the exhibit Grayscale: Voices of LGBTQ+ Youth.

Grayscale is a story-based advocacy program for LGBTQ+ students 13-17 years old. Students have been accepted via an application process for this six-week internship working with professional artists to develop a public art exhibition. This exhibit tackles critical issues facing LGBTQ+ youth and seeks to broaden the dialogue about how to support youth in our community.

The Blackbird Arts studio will be open for those who want a self-guided tour, so feel free to come and go any time between 5:30pm and 7:30pm. The Grayscale students will talk briefly at 6:00pm. There is no fee to attend.

A portion of the exhibit will also be installed at Warehouse MRKT for the Pop-Up Art Gallery during Up North Pride week.
