October is National LGBTQ History Month!
In Trappers Dancing Around the Camp Fire, author, filmmaker, playwright and historian Gregory Hinton posits examples of LGBTQ hidden histories, including selected works by American painter Alfred Jacob Miller (1810-1874).
Commissioned in 1837 to travel to the annual fur trader’s rendezvous in Horse Creek, Miller is thought to be the first American artist to produce “on-site” watercolor and ink sketches which he later incorporated into finished watercolors and oils.
A Colorado son, Gregory Hinton is the creator of Out West, a national museum program series offering lectures, plays, and gallery exhibitions dedicated to shining a light on the history and culture of the LGBTQ community in the American West since 2009.
