Founded nearly 150 years ago, the San Francisco Art Institute has a rich history with LGBTQ people often playing a major role as both teachers and students, ranging from interior decorator Edward Searles to photographer Minor White to performance artists Jerome Caja and Arturo Galster.
This entertaining and informative illustrated talk by SFAI librarian and archivist Jeff Gunderson and former SFAI library staffer Jim Van Buskirk will explore those and other unconventional San Francisco characters.
Among the figures who will be highlighted: faculty such as Jerry Burchard and James Broughton; alumni such as Bernice Bing, Catherine Opie, Win Ng, Annie Leibowitz and Jess; and cultural fellow travelers including the Cockettes, David Cannon Dashiell and Martin Wong.
