Over the past year, San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture has been working with artist, curator and Lady Base Gallery founder Sarah Castillo to develop “We Are,” a multimedia exhibition that “reflects upon the wide array of experiences and challenges faced by the LGBTQI+ community and celebrates LGBTQI+ identities, narratives and history.”

Presented in observance of Pride month and running through July 13, the group show encompasses everything from painting and drawing to photography and installations created by 13 established and emerging artists. Judging from the past work of folkloric surrealist David Zamora Casas, mixed-media/performance artist Jose Villalobos, trans photographer Antonia Celeste Padilla, writer/painter Anel I. Flores, conceptual sculptor/poet/painter Kristy Perez and drag queen enthusiast Julián P. Ledezma, “We Are” promises an eclectic and provocative viewing experience exploring nearly every color of the rainbow.

Free, Thu May 17, 6-9pm, Culture Commons Gallery, 115 Plaza de Armas, (210) 206-2787, getcreativesanantonio.com.
