Emily Lombardo

 LIFE LINES, a new body of work by Emily Lombardo that weaves a personal and cultural examination of lesbian lineage. The artist approaches this study as a genealogist who is piecing together the stories of her lesbian family, which are fading from cultural memory. Lombardo conjures surreal images of struggle and strength, which stretch across time to consider where we stand today.  LIFE LINES is honoring the artists, fighters, and community that struggled for civil rights and helped her to find her voice. The public is encouraged to take rubbings from Lombardo’s woodblocks to create their own piece of visual history.
