The Center for Creativity and the Arts (CCA) presents “Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall,” Aug. 19 through Oct. 31, 2021, at the Phebe Conley Art Gallery at Fresno State. During the exhibition, the gallery will be open to the public from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 12 p.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free.
The critically acclaimed 2019 exhibition commemorating the uprising is now opening for the second time to give audiences on the West Coast an opportunity to learn, reflect and revel in the profound legacy of this cultural occasion through artistic expression.
In addition to works displayed at the 2019 Brooklyn Museum exhibition, CCA will work with the Brooklyn Museum to include local and West Coast artists. A catalog of the exhibition will be available through the center.
The Fresno State showing of “Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall” is made possible through a generous grant from The McClatchy Fresno Arts Endowment of The James B. McClatchy Foundation.

In 1969, a routine police raid of the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City, ignited a six-day clash between police and civilians which many see as the birthplace of the modern LGBTQ+ civil rights movement. Fifty years later, a groundbreaking art exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum reflected the rallying cry “Nobody Promised You Tomorrow” by transgender artist and activist Marsha P. Johnson. The exhibition features artists born after the uprising whose work questions how moments become monuments while grappling with the political and cultural conditions of our time. Examined through these artists and their mediums are themes of revolt, commemoration, care and desire.
