History of Gay Art Exhibition in Miami
Wish I was in South Florida to see 'Gay Art: From Ancient to Modern' which opened June 23 at World Erotic Art Museum in South Beach. * The exhibit runs through the 27th of July, and includes a Wilhelm Von Gloeden history as well as works by Robert Mapplethorpe, Keith Haring and others. I've included Bon Gloeden's Caino (1902) here though I don't know whither that image is in the exhibit.Naomi Wilzig (collector) has put the exhibit together from her own collection (http://jbkart.blogspot.com/2008/05/baron-wilhelm-von-gloeden-part-iii.html). "The Art of John Bittinger Klomp" includes past entries about most of the artists in the Miami exhibition. Check Steve Rothaus blog entry about the exhibit.
