Community Partners Unveil Concept for New Mural Celebrating LGBTQ+ Pride

"Don’t Forget Us" by artist Jade Harrison-Warrick (TrashKid) commemorates two iconic LGBTQ+ figures, Marsha P. Johnson and Harvey Milk

Albany’s latest mural concept was unveiled at the annual Pride Kick-off Block Party celebrating the kick-off of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month on Friday, May 31.

This mural, that will feature LGBTQ+ icons Marsha P. Johnson and Harvey Milk, will be painted on side of Waterworks Pub, and is a partnership between the Central Avenue Business Improvement District, the Albany Center Gallery, Albany Barn and the Albany Parking Authority (ParkAlbany

The icons featured in “Don’t Forget Us” represent strength in the LGBTQ+ community, having both been tragically murdered while fighting for gay rights. The first figure is of the famous black street queen and transgender pioneer, Marsha P. Johnson. The second is Harvey Milk, a major catalyst for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBTQ+) civil rights movement. In this mural, Warrick wanted to tell a story of community and love, while encouraging people to be comfortable in their own skin.

Attendees of the unveiling enjoyed the free Pride Kick-off block party, in addition to speeches by community leaders including Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan, Albany Executive Liaison for the LGBTQ Community Richard Conti, Albany Council President Corey Ellis, Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy, Assembly Member Patricia Fahy, Assembly Member John McDonald, and Senator Neil Breslin.

Albany’s newest mural celebrating LGBTQ+ pride is scheduled to be completed later this summer.

This mural will be part of Capital Walls, an effort that seeks to inspire our community with uplifting, educational, or thought-provoking works of public art. By introducing more art into the community, the #CapitalWalls collaboration encourages the community to amplify the vibrancy and culture of the area.

"Creative expression has the power to change, activate and inspire a community. Jade's mural will highlight the importance of creativity and the power of coming together to support and uplift artists in the LGBTQ+ community and to activate a space to unite those around us. Jade's vision, passion, and artistic talent are incredibly impactful and speak to the talents emerging from our region. This is a great addition to the #CapitalWalls mural program," said Tony Iadicicco Capital Walls Mural Curator, Director Albany Center Gallery.

"I am an illustrator. Visual artist. Queer alien. Who loves to use her work to visually educate. I want to showcase these revolutionaries who have contributed so much towards LGBTQ+ rights but may not get the recognition they deserve for contributing so much of what we see today in the LGBTQ+ community. I'm honored and excited to bring this vision to life," said Jade Harrison-Warrick, Trashkid Art.

“Public art promotes community, walkability and creating a sense of place. The Albany Parking Authority is proud to be making this contribution to our community and hope it showcases the inclusion and diversity of our great City. The Albany Parking Authority is excited to be part of Albany’s vibrant and flourishing arts scene,” said Matthew Peter, Executive Director of the Albany Parking Authority.

"Community projects like the LGBT mural installation, as well as the rainbow crosswalk on Central Avenue, are positive symbols of a city that understands the value of diversity and inclusion," said Martha Harvey, Executive Director and CEO of the Pride Center of the Capital Region.

“The Central Avenue BID is proud to be working with the many partners and property owners working to make this mural project a reality. There will be much work to do and we are committed to helping see it through. Thank you to the Parking Authority for their ongoing support and efforts to help us further develop the business community and in supporting public art,” said Anthony Capece, Executive Director of the Central Avenue BID.

“Don’t Forget Us is a perfect representation of how artists and public art can connect with a community to promote solidarity and pride, to commemorate important history, and to provide a very prominent visual reminder that in this city - in this region - the voices of those who’ve historically been silenced will be heard,” said KP Holler, Director of Albany Barn Inc.

Artists Reception, mark your calendar!
Friday, June 7, 2019 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Interact: /ˌɪn·tərˈækt/, featuring the works of regional artists Ali Herrmann, Danielle Klebes Art, Reinhardt Moore, Steve Rein, Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt, and Jeff Wigman.

Albany Center Gallery Presents Interact: /ˌɪn·tərˈækt/, Six Artists’ Explorations of Human Relations. The Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/830507303953054/

Albany, New York - From May 23 - June 22, 2019, Albany Center Gallery (ACG) will present Interact: /ˌɪn·tərˈækt/, featuring the works of regional artists Ali Herrmann, Danielle Klebes, Reinhardt Moore, Steve Rein, Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt, and Jeff Wigman. An artists’ reception will be held at ACG from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 7, 2019, and the public is invited to attend.

Humans are constantly engaging with nearby objects, surrounding environments, and other people. These connections are reflected in works of art, which draw in the additional dimension of viewers. They are strangers who walk into a new scene with the potential to relate to it. Interact: /ˌɪn·tərˈækt/ is therefore not merely the interactions between subjects within the frame, or from one piece to another, but also from work to beholder and in dialogues between one viewer and the next.

Interact: /ˌɪn·tərˈækt/, is sponsored by David Phaff & Associates Inc. at Howard Hanna R.E. Services as well as Discover Albany, ParkAlbany, the New York State Council on the Arts, Renaissance Hotel Albany, Honest Weight Food Co-op, and the Albany Wine & Dine for the Arts Festival.
