In this exhibition, Secret Love has compiled objects and images from completed events, performances and projects in a site-specific installation that celebrates Breck Pride Week, Mar 7–11. The “Anniversary” they celebrate is their own first year together, Breckenridge’s second annual Pride Week and LGBTQ+ lives that don’t always include traditional trajectories, milestones or commemorations. Exhibition-Related Events: Tell Your Secrets: Secrets Faire March 10 + 11, 2pm | Gallery@BRK + Robert Whyte House In partnership with Breck Pride Week, Secret Love Collective hosts a “Tell Your Secrets: Secrets Faire” on the Arts District campus. Audiences can tell their secrets and stories through embroidery, karaoke, dress-up, self-portraiture, and more.
