"OUTrageous" is a powerful and timely exhibition that personifies Art Ventures’ commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ Community. The exhibition represents a defiant assertion of queer creativity, expression, and identity. “OUTrageous” does this against the backdrop of regressive laws and policies that seek to undermine the rights and dignity of queer individuals across the country.
The exhibition showcases the works of both Represented and Visiting Artists, providing queer individuals with an opportunity to define and celebrate what queer art means to them. By doing so, "OUTrageous" aims to challenge the misconceptions and stereotypes that have been historically associated with queer art, while also creating a space for queer artists to share their stories, experiences, and perspectives.

#NWAJuneteenth 2021 Exhibition
#NWAJuneteenth is a virtual gallery of video exhibitions by local and regional Black artists who continue to work for freedom in America. Several of them have answered the question, “what does Juneteenth mean to me?” It is great to hear what they know, and we can find familiarity in their experiences. Their answers are much like that of other American Black families.
Importantly, the artwork attests to the role of artists in building strength in community and culture.
