CALL for ART: Transcending the Spectrum 4

The Metro Trans Umbrella Group is excited to be celebrating our 4th annual art exhibition and fundraiser “Transcending the Spectrum.” MTUG aims to bring together the community of trans, gender queer, and the entire LGBT spectrum, in the St. Louis metro area. We are looking to feature art by LGBTQIA artists. Any and all artists who identify as LGBTQIA are cordially invited to be a part of this exhibition which will run from March 25th through May 13th.
