THE CORNER

The Corner at Whitman-Walker connects cultures and communities through programming of exhibitions, events, educational initiatives and artistic research, in order to increase access to art and to other cultural knowledge production. The Corner generates content around health and social justice concerns from an intersectional LGBTQ perspective by focusing on local and global contemporary art. We activate the creative potential of each and every person and gather a public that will help shape a hopeful vision of the future.
