Northglenn Arts recently announce the installation of the “Amor es Amor” Celebrating LGBTQIA+ Chicanos/Latinos gallery exhibit which begins April 14. Northglenn Arts is proud to partner with Chicano Humanities & Arts Council  (CHAC) on Northglenn’s Parsons Theatre Gallery Wall. CHAC is an inclusive community of all creatives that are dedicated to preserving, showcasing, educating, and reflecting the essence of Chicana/o/x, Latina/o/x, and other multicultural/multiracial communities. Northglenn Arts works to provide access to the arts for all people and have chosen to collaborate with CHAC due to their dedication to inclusivity and powerful storytelling.


“Amor es Amor” is about sharing and celebrating who we are as LGBTQIA+ Chicanos/Latinos, this show is dedicated to the dignity, self-respect, pride, uniqueness, and a feeling of a cultural rebirth in our community through the arts. “Amor es Amor” is free and open to the public.


“The LGBTQ+ rights movement has made tremendous strides over the past few decades and much of the progress in visibility is thanks to the dedicated work of artists. I am excited for the community to experience and enjoy this show. People will walk away with a sense of pride (and hopefully will purchase a piece of art)!” said show curator Lucille Rivera.


Artists in this exhibit include: Karman Canvas, Cal Duran, Renee Fajardo, Jay Jaramillo, Shantel Lucero, Giuliana Maresca, Tania Maldonado, Marina Morales, Lucille Rivera, Sandra Ruiz, Damaris Santos, Vanessa Zamora; and curators Shantel Lucero, Tania Maldonado, and Lucille Rivera.
