Artist Reception: More Glitter – Less Bitter | SOMA
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Electric Works is pleased to present More Glitter – Less Bitter, a poignant romp through Dan Nicoletta’s vigilant documentation of San Francisco’s gay, lesbian, bisexual transgender communities.
In 1975 Dan Nicoletta was hired by Harvey Milk to work in Milk’s Castro Street camera store and there at age 19, Dan’s life path as a documentarian for that emerging scene began. Milk was one of the first openly gay elected officials in the world and he became a symbol of hope to the LGBT civil rights movement after he was assassinated in 1978.
The photographs in the exhibit will highlight significant moments along the way including still photos taken by Nicoletta on the set of Gus Van Sant’s Academy Award winning film MILK in which actor Lucas Grabeel portrayed Nicoletta.
