This exhibition showcases artwork created by transgender, non-binary people, and collaborative projects. Students, community members and national artists are featured in this exhibition exploring themes of self identity, resilience, and their relationships with society. Each transgender individual has their own diverse and unique experiences. Note to Self features work from students and community members reflecting on personal experiences represented in all mediums. Our Trans Family created by a group called For Good Photography showcases their work documenting the lives of trans families in the Milwaukee area. Transilient is a national project that shares the journeys of trans and non-binary people from around the United States through powerful interviews and photographs. Transcend is a 2018 art series created by Rae Senarighi, a Portland-based transgender artist, which features larger than life, vividly colored portraits. All are welcomed.
