Gay Gotham: Art and Underground Culture in New York

Museum of the City of New York
1220 Fifth Ave.
Manhattan, NY 10029


The Museum of the City of New York highlights the underground world of LGBT New Yorkers whose creativity helped shape mainstream society as we know it today. Bringing to life the creative networks that existed all over the City throughout the 20th century, this two-gallery exhibition celebrates the “power of artistic collaboration to transcend oppression.” The show includes paintings, photographs and letters from Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, Mae West, Gertrude Stein and Leonard Bernstein.
