Leslie Lohman Museum of Art
The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art was created to preserve LGBTQ+ identity and build community. The Museum’s roots trace back to 1969, when Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman held an exhibit of gay artists for the first time in their SoHo loft. Throughout the ’70s, they continued to collect and exhibit gay artists while supporting the SoHo art community. Today, the Museum preserves, diversifies and showcases the 25,000-plus collection of artworks in its holdings and by doing so, represents an ever-evolving constellation of queer experiences.
