Bored of regular art exhibitions? Look no further than the Bancroft Library’s “A Place at the Table: A Gathering of LGBT Text, Image and Voice” exhibit, which will showcase literature, film, photography and other work of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender artists. Many of the pieces were held by writers Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas.

One highlight of the exhibit is a five-hour oral history interview with Toklas. Don’t worry, you don’t have to listen to the whole thing; in fact, you can’t! The transcript will be on display along with other famous writings such as Stein’s letter introducing author Samuel Steward to Pablo Picasso.

The exhibit will open on Wednesday, April 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. for an opening reception, but the exhibit will be open through July from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you want more info about the Bancroft library click here!

Hope to see you there!
