Artists of faith, and especially GLBT artists of color have been marginalized in the world of contemporary art, so we decided to do our part to support their work and influence. My name is Gregory Disney-Britton, and welcome to the Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts. Ernest and I started this project in 2008 when we were living in New York City and following the trail of Kehinde Wiley.
Today, our project includes this art news website, an annual artist prize, and both summer and winter museum tours. We collect paintings, photographs, 3D works, and even dime-store copies of Old Masters. A few LGBT/POC favorites from the A&O collection are Kehinde Wiley, Niccolo Cosme, and Tony Melendez.
