Spectrum III: An LGBTQ+ Exhibition
Explore artwork by local artists of all ages from Indy’s LGBTQ+ community. This exhibit intends to promote equality, inclusivity, and diversity by highlighting local LGBTQ+ artists. Artwork showcased will aim to be reflective of individuals’ identities, stories, and experiences to achieve awareness of LGBTQ+ issues, especially as they relate to our Hoosier environment. Celebrate diversity through the voices of these artists, and unite as one in support of our local LGBTQ+ community. We are partnering with Indy Pride to host this exhibit and First Friday. Visit our Facebook event for more details!
Indy Pride, Inc. produces events which educate, honor our history, and celebrate the diversity of the Indianapolis Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community. We exist to unite and serve our members and the LGBTQ+ community of Central Indiana through leadership development, educational programs, and community events which achieve inclusivity, equality, strong community connections, and awareness of LGBTQ+ issues.

Our first featured artist is vocalist and writer,
Okara Imani. Imani’s sound is influenced by Jazz,
Funk, Alternative, and Punk. For this Friday
Performance, her set is an expression of self
echoed voices she admires. This performance is
a collection of shared human experiences in
introspection, retrospection, and acceptance.
We are excited to have dancer, teaching artist,
and the Executive Director of Indianapolis
Movement Arts Collective, Lauren Curry as one of
our featured artists. Curry will premier an original
work titled, “Gaslight 2020,” a short comedy film
about the terrors of working from home.
Our third feature artist is Mae-Mae Han, Indianapolis born and raised singer-songwriter. She fuses her experience as a classical viola player and her love for song writing in the indie pop genre.
Join us for a Virtual Brewery conversation with taproom manager Josh Haines from the Garfield Brewery. Head over and grab a growler or walkie before the event to enjoy during the live stream.
