inkedKenny exhibit reception and refresh on May 26

CHICAGO — The Leather Archives & Museum will be having a “refresh” of the inkedKenny exhibit during International Mr. Leather this weekend.

According to a release from the Archives, the refresh will include a new selection of images and an open, free reception at the LA&M from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 26.

The Northside Leather Express shuttle will be running on that Saturday starting at 2 PM, so catching the shuttle from The Congress Plaza Hotel & Convention Center to the LA&M is easy. (Shuttles will run on the hour from the Congress, dropping off visitors at the corner of Greenview and Devon, steps away from the museum. Return trips back to the hotel will leave on the half-hour from Touche, which is just a few blocks away.) The museum is also reachable via the #77 Clark CTA bus, as well as the nearby Loyola Red Line stop.

“MEN as seen through the lens of inkedKenny”, a selection of B&W and color photography by InkedKenny exploring the male form in work that The Advocate magazine has described as having, quote, “a salty experienced patina of sweat, sex, and something that looks like it smells great.”
