Hide/Seek exhibit at Smithsonian

I recently found an article that reveals that the Smithsonian has a new exhibit about the impact of gays on art history that reminded me of The Celluloid Closet, which we discussed in class.
The Smithsonian exhibit showcases art by LGBT artists and attempts to "lift the veil on what has been hidden in the discussion of American art history."
Both the film and the exhibit are meant to demonstrate that although it has been masked in some ways and often forgotten, homosexuality has always been present, and represented, in our culture.
