Join Central Maine Pride for our opening reception at the Colby College Museum of Art in celebration of this year’s theme: “Remember Our Heritage, Do Something Now, Love Always.” We welcome you to an evening of art, hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and community, hosted by our beloved Chuck Locke. This opening reception is part of a four day weekend of activities. Please view the full schedule for this year’s Central Maine Pride Weekend.
Our theme this year is complemented by the Museum’s current exhibition, Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness. Through this ongoing photographic project, South African queer visual activist Zanele Muholi presents a visionary mosaic of identities, an exquisite empire of selves. The exhibition will be open all evening, and a guided tour of the exhibition will be offered at 5:30 pm by Beth Finch, Lunder Curator of American Art.
This event is free and open to the public. We invite you to come as your true selves.
