Richmond, VA — The Virginia Museum of History & Culture (VMHC) and Virginia Pride are partnering to mark LGBTQ+ Pride Week in Richmond by featuring a special work of art by artist Jumper Maybach in the Story of Virginia exhibition. The work, which Virginia Pride commissioned and donated to the museum in 2018, depicts the Virginia State Capitol and represents an important addition to the museum’s growing LGBTQ+ collections.

“As the state’s history museum, we are firmly dedicated to representing all who are a part of the Virginia experience,” said VMHC President Jamie Bosket, “as such we are deeply committed to better reflecting the diversity of the state, including preserving and sharing the stories of LGBTQ+ communities in the Commonwealth.”

The VMHC’s new display will also feature documents and artifacts from the VMHC collections including a program from the fifth annual Richmond Lesbian and Gay Pride Day held in 1989 which was the 20th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York, and a joint custody consent order granted to same-sex couple Mary Townley and Carol Schall upon the birth of Mary’s daughter in 1998. The couple became plaintiffs in the case of Bostic v. Rainey, which overturned Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage in 2014.

The museum is collaborating with LGBTQ+ communities to document these important stories by collecting oral histories, images, documents, and artifacts. If you have a story or item to share, please contact Adam Scher, Vice President of Collections, at 804.342.9670 or ascher@virginiahistory.org.

The presentation will run through February 16, 2020 and will feature documents and memorabilia from VMHC’s growing LGBTQ history archive. A noted piece featured in the exhibit is a painting by celebrity artist, Jumper Maybach, depicting the Virginia Capitol.

The piece was commissioned for the LGBTQ organization, Virginia Pride, which donated the painting to the VMHC last year. A similar painting by the artist hangs in Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney’s office.

“It’s an honor and privilege to be included in this monumental and historic exhibition,” states Maybach. “Having one of my pieces hang in the Virginia Museum of History and Culture is a highlight of my career.”

The installation of the presentation is timed to coincide with Virginia Pride’s annual Pridefest in Richmond, one of the largest LGBTQ events in the Commonwealth attracting more than 30,000 attendees.

As the VMHC plans to mount a more comprehensive exhibition about the history of Virginia’s LGBTQ community in the future, they are encouraging the public to contact them with stories and artifacts connected to this important, but often unacknowledged, history.  

The VMHC expects to host an event the week of the presentation’s opening to welcome the LGBTQ and greater Richmond communities to the museum. Virginia Museum of History and Culture

Jumper Maybach was born in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1963. He knew something special had taken place when his grandfather applied a white face on him the first time. It was then, within an instant that Jumper was born.

However, it wasn’t until a religious experience during a painful time in Jumper’s life which enabled his vision to fully take shape.. Jumper’s techniques are self-taught through intense experimentation leading to an end result: unique and representative of the artist. It’s about understanding love, peace and the ultimate healthy transformation of an individual.

The art is a constant evolution of color and complete abandonment of the paint. It is an unplanned performance that creates the extraordinary works. The complexity within his art comes from within. Jumper is unashamed to teach the world a lesson in compassion. His art is a beacon for ending hate, bullying and intolerance in the world.

Not long after Jumper began his career as an artist, he started to receive national and international recognition for his work. In 2013, Jumper held his first gallery show, which ultimately led to an invite to attend Art Dubai 2013, UAE as a VIP guest. The Artist exhibited in Dubai, UAE in 2015 and 2017 at the prestigious ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE.

Shortly after, Jumper had the opportunity to exhibit 39 large important pieces of work in Venice, Italy in his largest exhibition to date. He created and curated a Venice series specifically for the show which also included a screening of the trailer to his documentary “The Jumper Maybach Story”. Another momentous career moment occurred when Jumper was invited to exhibit his art at the Gallerie Du Louvre.

For 2018, the coming decade, and for as long as he actively can with his artistic voice, Jumper will pursue his mission of ending hate, bullying and intolerance through his extraordinary talent.

JAZZ JENNINGS RECEIVES NEW ARTWORK PAINTED BY LGBT ARTIST JUMPER MAYBACH 

Celebrity Artist, LGBTQ Activist & Humanitarian Ben Workman aka Jumper Maybach has a new fan, transgender personality, Jazz Jennings.Jumper recently gifted Jennings a one-of-a-kind work of art titled “From Darkness to Light #5.” Jazz Jennings is an LGBTQ rights activist and television personality, notable for being one of the youngest publicly documented people to be identified as transgender, and for being the youngest person to become a national transgender figure.

“I am now officially Jumper’s #1 fan,” states Jennings. “Jumper is so talented and his story really touched my heart. I believe that we all have a destined calling. I love his motto! I’m certainly on the same page. I know I’m only a teenager, but it’s my mission to spread my message of acceptance, tolerance and unconditional love.”

Jennings received national attention in 2007 when an interview with Barbara Walters aired on 20/20, which led to other high-profile interviews and appearances. Jennings stars in the TLC reality TV series, I Am Jazz, which focuses on her life with her family as a teenager and as a transgender youth.

Houston-based Master Illusionist Robby Bennett brings the electrifying spectacle of magic, acrobatics, comedy and more to announced venues in Texas this summer.  His mesmerizing show combines elements of fantasy and comedy, and offers timeless appeal to audiences of all ages, and incorporates the beauty and message of Jumper Maybach’s works.

The show has exhibited at Art Basel in Miami and is sure to become one of the premier art events in the United States, drawing fine art collectors from around the globe.

Maybach is sparking interest and commitment to diversity and equality, something the artist has in common with and strikingly similar to Artist Keith Haring’s Activism and use of highly visible art-directed expressions to reflect social issues, and Jumper’s Collection INTROSPECTION: THE PRIDE COLLECTION to celebrate GAY PRIDE 2018.

Last year, Maybach was appointed the Official Artist of Houston Pride as well as the Official Visiting Artist of Richmond Pride.

Maybach had the distinct honor to present original works of art to the Mayor’s of both Houston and Richmond, in which he highlighted the diversities of the cities within the works.

This activism draws similarities to Keith Haring, an American artist and activist in 1980s New York, whose artwork raised awareness on social issues at the time. One of the main awareness campaigns Haring participated in was AIDS awareness and activism. As an openly gay man and someone who was suffering from AIDS himself, Haring wanted to break the silence and stigma on AIDS as “gay cancer.” Through Haring’s style and images, he was able to reach a larger audience and spread the awareness of AIDS. Maybach carries on this legacy: giving a new focused awareness to history through the visual arts.

However, it wasn’t until a religious experience during a painful time in Jumper’s life which enabled his vision to fully take shape. Ben believes it is a person’s traumas that define the individual. He releases his joys and pain into his artwork, and thus becomes the storyteller of the creation. Jumper’s techniques are self-taught through intense experimentation leading to an end result: unique and representative of the artist. It’s about understanding love, peace and the ultimate healthy transformation of an individual.

In 2018, Maybach embarked on a four-city tour exhibiting his series The Pride Collection: INTROSPECTION, which saw him exhibit his work in Houston, Richmond, San Diego and Nashville. In many cities, the collection was tied to an LGBT Pride celebration. Maybach was named the Official Artist of Houston Pride and Official Guest Artist of Richmond Pride. Proceeds from sales of pride works were donated back to each respective city’s pride organizations.

He has also been selected as the Design and Artistic Director of Anomaly: The Magic of Robby Bennett and Other Curiosities. Maybach will design the set, costumes, programs and other entities for the touring show.
