Program Description

Event Details

Celebrate Pride Month with the Scarsdale Library. 

Join us for a discussion with Suzanne Altman to learn about artists from the Renaissance to the present day who are known to be LGBTQ, (though it was often not publicly acknowledged at the time), and how their identity impacted their work. It also explores artists whose art was used for social change or whose sexual identity fundamentally shaped their creativity. Some of the artists discussed are Michelangelo, John Singer Sargent, David Hockney, Keith Haring, Diane Arbus, and many more.

Suzanne Altman is an art educator and art historian who has presented art and art history programs throughout Rockland, Bergen and Westchester counties, for both adult and teenage audiences.

She is also a painter who works out of her studio and art school in Ossining, NY and exhibits frequently.

You will receive an email with a Zoom link approximately one hour before the start of this event.
