Identity Spectrum

From Friday May 4 through Sunday August 5, 2018 the Susquehanna Art Museum presents Identity Spectruma juried exhibition in the Lobby Gallery and Vault. As one of the fundamental aspects of personal identity, gender has been examined by artists throughout history. Society is experiencing the increased politicization of identity expression while contemporary boundaries and norms are constantly shifting. Works selected for this exhibition provide unique perspectives on individual expression and the definition of gender, both visually and conceptually.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by the LGBT and Allies Committee of Market Square Presbyterian Church. The LGBT and Allies Committee of Market Square Presbyterian Church recognizes the full breadth of gender identity expression and supports education and awareness to this end.
