Dancers We Lost Exhibition
June 12 – September 6
At West Hollywood Pride and in public locations throughout West Hollywood.
Presented by the California LGBT Arts Alliance, Impact Stories and the City of West Hollywood Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission.
Dancers We Lost (DWL) is a comprehensive dance history project honoring professional performers who died due to HIV/AIDS complications.
The heart and soul of DWL is a searchable database and biography files of each of the dancers. The most visual part of the project is an arts and public history exhibit showing the performers in their prime “strutting their stuff”. The photography exhibit will highlight the dancers who performed in a myriad of performance disciplines including: Broadway and Las Vegas Shows, Dance Concerts, Television Variety Shows, Films, Ballet, Music Videos and Commercials.
This is a free event.
Funding provided by the California Arts Council, The National Endowment for the Arts, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and the City of West Hollywood Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission.
