Hot Sheet: Fund-Raisin' in the Sun

The top 10 entertainment and events highlights on our gaydar this week: from a beach fund-raiser for L.A.'s gay center to some powerful ladies — Madonna, Sheryl Crow, and Batwoman.



10. ART: “Nude in Public: Sascha Schneider, Homoeroticism and the Male Form Circa 1900”
Schneider, a painter and sculptor, was one of the top artists in Germany in the early 20th century, and many of his works portrayed the beauty of the nude male body. Openly gay, he brought an unabashedly homoerotic sensibility to his art.  But within a generation, Schneider fell out of favor. Prominent art historian Jonathan David Katz has put together the first U.S. exhibition of Schneider’s work, examining not only his art but also the societal and cultural factors that contributed to his rise and fall. Opens next Friday at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City and runs through December 8; there will be a reception a week from tonight. More info here. (Look for an Artist Spotlight on Schneider Saturday.)
