PROUD is an exhibition of visual art running from June 2 - 25, 2017 produced by The Studio Door. The exhibit is a precursor to San Diego’s Pride celebrations held in July.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) artists are encouraged to present contemporary works that celebrate the unique sense of pride that this diverse community has. The Studio Door is seeking artwork that expresses authentic viewpoints of the LGBTQ experience. Artists are encouraged to submit meaningful works underscoring identity, lifestyle and diversification. Show us what your Pride looks like.

PROUD is an exhibit designed to celebrate LGBTQ artists in honor of the Stonewall Riots during National Pride Month. If you do not self-identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer, we respectfully ask that you consider entering one of The Studio Door's other calls for 2017.

Concurrent programming is being coordinated for San Diego artists with Art of Pride at San Diego Pride offices. More details to be announced. The Studio Door is happy to announce a continuation of collaboration with both organizations.
