A new online exhibit platform has been initiated. It currently has three exhibits: Chicago Lesbian and Gay History 1924-1978, Queer Zines, and Merchandise Catalogs. The platform can be accessed at exhibits.gerberhart.org or by clicking the “Online Exhibits” button in the above.
The exhibit displays comics from a span of nearly 50 years, examining three themes in particular: style and identity, AIDS, and anger. The exhibit includes work from cartoonists like Alison Bechdel and Howard Cruse, as well as comics produced by government agencies and mainstream publishers. The exhibit is on display
