Colour By Icons presented by Never Apart–featuring 25 Toronto artists
Colour by Icons is a colouring book project and gallery exhibit that aims to restore the importance of queer history and role models through an educational device that fills in some of the gaps of our past while colouring inside the lines. The Never Apart LGBT Historic Colouring Book is a fun and retro-kitsch project that also serves as an educational tool. So much of queer history has been erased and is not something we are taught in school. Growing up, many of us did not have queer role models. In this cool, collectible art book, we celebrate some of queer history’s most colourful trailblazers: legends and heroic symbols of our struggles, talents, and achievements. There are 25 iconic images found inside and bound in the 1980’s Colouring Book style. People visitnthe exhibition are encouraged to colour in their favourite Icons and put their artwork on the wall. In Colour by Icons, it’s up to you to colour inside or outside the lines.
