@properties Christie’s International Real Estate has long been a supporter of the arts. And as we continue to honor Pride month, we had no trouble finding several flourishing LGBTQ+ artists and allies within the Chicagoland area. Utilizing a variety of mediums, here are seven artists that demonstrate their exceptional gifts while also supporting LGBTQ+ individuals.
Sam Kirk explores culture and identity politics through various art disciplines. She prides herself on showcasing vivid images of women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and those who are historically underrepresented. Many of her pieces are public murals used to spark dialogue, and they can be found throughout Chicago. She also recently illustrated a children’s book titled “The Meaning of Pride.”
