General Mills, a company nationally recognized for promoting diversity in the workplace, is celebrating Gay Pride at their corporate headquarters in Golden Valley, Minn., by sponsoring the photographic exhibit “A Personal Pride.” Minneapolis artist Chuck Smith (www.chucksmithphoto.com) says the monthlong installation will feature “new work [that] incorporates multiple layers of color imagery, reflecting some six years photographing my experiences within our community and culture of pride.” The exhibit will also feature a time line of significant gay rights events. There will be a public reception for the event on Thursday, June 21, at the General Mills corporate headquarters, located on General Mills Blvd.
