A Day of Silence and Coming Out

We asked staff members to contribute to our Collective Voices audio guides as part of the exhibition Art after Stonewall,1969-1889, the groundbreaking survey featuring more than 200 works of art and related visual materials that explore the profound impact of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBTQ) Civil-Rights movement on the art world.

Listen to a few of their personal stories in honor of A Day of Silence today, a national student led day protesting the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people. 

The Pizzuti Collection of the Columbus Museum of Art’s Experience and Operations Manager, Mark Zuzik, reflects on the importance of LGBT representation, and his hopes for the future.
