In the Galleries: Once Upon a Time and Now


To celebrate New York's LGBT Community Center's renovation an historic collection of work is on show.

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of New York City has completed a $9.2 million renovation of its main building. To mark the ribbon cutting there will also be a remounting of an historic exhibit from 1989, "The Center Show." Originally the 1989 exhibit was a series of site-specific installations commissioned by the Center to mark the then 20th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. New works will also be displayed.

The title of the exhibition references the title of Keith Haring's second floor bathroom mural entitled Once Upon a Time, and painted nine months before his death from AIDS.

The ribbon cutting ceremony is February 3 at 6:30 p.m. and the exhibit is on view till April 6.

Check the Center's site for more information.
