We Will Always be Here | Wisconsin’s LGBTQ+ Historymakers presentation at Vernon County Museum
June 5 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Just in time for June Pride Month, the Wisconsin Historical Society’s traveling exhibit, We Will Always Be Here: Wisconsin’s LGBTQ+ Historymakers, will open at the museum on Monday, June 5. The exhibit will be set up in the 1st-floor conference room. Eight Wisconsinites from the past and present are featured on panels inspired by graphic novels, with original artwork by Ojibwe artist nipinet landsem.
Those featured include Ralph Kerwineo (1876-1932) of Milwaukee, Ted Pierce (1907-1999) of Madison, and Lou Sullivan (1951-1991) of Wauwatosa. In addition to this travelling exhibit, we will also have on display our own new exhibit about local LGBTQ+ historymakers, called “In Plain Sight: The Taylors of Lynxville”. These exhibits will be at the museum during regular hours through July 1 with the exception of Saturday, June 17, when they will be on display at the Viroqua Area Pride festival in Eckhart Park.
