Public space is historically frictious for lesbians. From the lack of representation in ads to acts of violence on the street, there’s often little space left for the lesbian community to show that they exist—and that they matter. To counter this narrative, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art teamed up with fierce pussy, a collective of lesbian artists, and 115 backers to build a year long public artwork celebrating queer visibility and solidarity.

AND SO ARE YOU consists of ten backlit murals from the collective directly applied onto the Museum’s ten ground-level windows. By pairing pictures of women with affirming quotes, the mural “serves as a provocation to resist the dire political climate we find ourselves in,” the museum notes.
