Up North Pride Creates Three Art Exhibits To Unite Community During National Pride Month

June is National Pride month, and Up North Pride is looking to unite the community.

Amidst the pandemic, the group has pushed back their large events such as their Drag Night and Visibility March to Oct., but still want the LGBTQ community to feel connected.

They’re creating three art exhibits fitting in shipping containers held at Shorts Brewing in Elk Rapids, Farm Club in Traverse City, and Iron Fish Distillery in Thompsonville, all exploring the themes of “catharsis.”

“There will be an artist taking over each one of those locations, with the theme of catharsis in mind,” said Nick Viox, Programming Director of Up North Pride. “So you’ll see a different exhibit that sort of celebrates different emotions around that theme, and it will allow the community to come together in safe spaces across Northern Michigan.”

The exhibits will be up through the end of the month.
