In the morning of August 5, 1962, actress Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her home. In the morning of June 28, 1969, Greenwich Village Stonewall Inn was raided by police and the gay liberation movement began.

Inspired by these two events, Danish artist Michael Chang and regional artist Jan Kather have created a video installation. Tammy Renee Brackett (Alfred), Tom Oberg (Elmira), Graham McDougal (Ithaca), Dan Reidy & Wendy Taylor (Elmira), John Criscitello (Ithaca), Wilka Roig (Ithaca), Janeen LaMontagne (Waverly), and Marty McCutcheon (San Francisco) were invited to contribute to this installation.
