We Are More: Stories by Queer Comic Artists Extended Through October with New Events

California Humanities is pleased to announce the extension of current Art of Storytelling exhibit We Are More: Stories by Queer Comic Artists through October 2019. We Are More highlights the connections between queer identity and other lived experiences, through the artwork and storytelling of four contemporary queer-identified Oakland-based comic artists: Ajuan Mance, Breena Nuñez, Lawrence Lindell, and Trinidad Escobar. The exhibit also features clips from a forthcoming film, NO STRAIGHT LINES: THE STORY OF QUEER COMICS, by filmmaker Vivian Kleiman, which tells the story of how LGBTQ comics evolved from a marginalized underground scene to that of mainstream acknowledgement that we know today.

In celebration of this extension, join us for open hours on second Fridays of the month, 11 am to 2 pm, or at one of the upcoming public Sketch and Snack sessions, with free figure drawing with the artists and treats.
