Fairy soap! Harvey’s eyeglasses! The original designs for the Women's Building murals! Want to know more? So do we!
Welcome to Illuminating Artifacts, a 33-day online crowdfunding campaign to preserve the 33-year-old GLBT Historical Society's Art & Artifacts Collection. Sometimes poignant, often naughty and always emblematic of the diversity of the queer community, these materials need to be properly documented, stored and displayed.
— I'm intrigued, tell me more…
— From Gilbert Baker’s rhinestone tambourines to Sylvester's glove collection, from Phyllis Abry Kaplan's World War II scrapbooks to leather-clad teddy bears, the Art & Artifacts Collection contains thousands of banners, pins, buttons, costumes, sculptures, paintings, t-shirts, historic business signs, theatrical props, and everything in between.
— Fantabulous, how can I help?
