Jerome Stueart, Yukon and Bumble Singing at the Eagle, NYC
The last day of "The Further (Queer) Adventures of Yukon Cornelius,” a solo show by artist Jerome Stueart. Stueart reimagines the boisterous red-bearded prospector from the 1964 Christmas special, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” as a gay man whose whole life is helping monsters, “Hiddens,” adapt to the world of people around them. This exhibit of giant-sized acrylic paintings and smaller watercolor paintings examines queer life and issues through the lens of monsters and heroes. Stueart, a World Fantasy Award nominee in Short Fiction, has written stories to go with some of the paintings which you can read through QR codes or hear in a reading Sunday afternoon as part of an artist’s talk (keep a look out for more details). Yukon Cornelius was created by Romeo Muller and is in the public domain. A special wall will celebrate Muller, a gay Jewish writer who penned many well-known, well-beloved movies. Event is FREE and open to the public. Mature Content.
