Daniel J Sander, PhD (Virtual)

Assistant Curator of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and

Lesbian Art. (www.leslielohman.org)

The Leslie-Lohman Museum is the only dedicated art museum in the world to exhibit and preserve artwork that speaks about the LGBTQ experience. Our roots trace back to 1969 when Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman held an exhibit of gay artists for the first time in their SoHo loft. Throughout the 1970s, they continued to collect and exhibit gay artists while supporting the SoHo art community. During the AIDS pandemic of the 1980s, the collection continued to grow as they rescued the work of dying artists from families who, out of shame or ignorance, wanted to destroy it. This led to the formation of the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation in 1987. In recognition of its importance in the collection and preservation of LGBTQ history, the organization was accredited as a museum in 2016.

Tad Lauritzen Wright (In person / grad critiques)

(lauritzenwright.com) (davidluskgallery.com)

In his work, Tad is interested in generating an impromptu reaction to an idea, thought, or experience. He has always been attracted to art work that comes from discounted sources. He takes basic ideas, simple plans, and rigorous daydreaming to an extreme in his work, always attempting to elevate his ideas and observations. Craft and hobby projects are elevated to art status, and icons of the past become poised for new interpretations in his work. He believes in allowing the extended possibilities of landscape, dead images, jokes, plays on art history, pop culture, and personal history to shape how the pieces develop. He approaches his work as an ongoing project where he is constantly expanding his own artistic vocabulary.
