This week, we’ll get to know our Queens of Ceremonies, iconic drag performers Icon Ebony Fierce and Lili St. Queer. As hosts, Icon and Lili will be there during gallery hours to connect you with both the art projects and other participants (we know it’s nice to have some support getting back out into the world).
P.S. Don’t miss their special opening and closing performances at 6:30PM on Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 22!
