Art of Pride

Art of Pride through the years

Art of Pride was created to intentionally have civic and artistic spaces where LGBTQ artists can freely express themselves and have a venue for community members to enjoy their creativity. The program offers a space in the festival as well as the opportunity to be a featured artist with their pieces displayed at the Pride office in North Park.
