"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.

Through its powerful and diverse range of works, "OUTrageous" seeks to celebrate the resilience, strength, and beauty of the queer community. It represents a firm opposition against the forces of intolerance, hatred, and discrimination that seek to erode the hard-fought gains of queer rights and freedoms.

"OUTrageous" is not just an exhibition of queer art; it is a bold and defiant statement of queer pride.
