Pride Month with the Met Museum: Berenice Abbott
June 15, 2022 | 10AM
We’re connecting the work of LGBTQ artists in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art with the physical sites where they lived and worked this month in a five-part special Pride 2022 collaboration! Every week, we’ll join in conversation with our colleagues at the Met to celebrate the work and legacy of an artist who’s featured on our website, www.nyclgbtsites.org.
