Here is a statement from DCE:

We are kicking off the beginning of a series of showings by queer artists starting with this fundraiser for the Henry Wallace Brigade’s trip to Cuba. Some of the artists are showing this work for the first time in a public setting due to the sometimes controversial nature of queer representation in both the media and art world of Louisville, KY. Donations are encouraged at the door THOUGH NOT REQUIRED. Artists will be present on February 1st along with entertainment with art that runs the gamut from mixed media, to video installation, photography, charcoal and more. Almost all of the proceeds will be going towards getting our friends to Cuba and back! ALL are welcome, and additional information on the Henry Wallace Brigade will be available. Not to mention BBC’s newest stout!
