The Gender Within: The Art of Identity

Art has been a way for creative individuals to investigate, challenge, and express their thoughts and ideas. This exhibition will celebrate artwork exploring the nuances in how people identify their gender and the fluidity within labeled identities and orientations. The Gender Within: The Art of Identity Exhibition will be at the Eaton DC (1201 K St NW) through December 2022.
