A JURIED Exhibition

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
“WHOSE AMERICA IS IT, ANYWAY?” seeks artists whose artwork addresses current racial, social and political struggles. This country is experiencing another period of greater racial consciousness and increased social, political and racial turbulence. Recent events have yet again shown the reality of the shifting power struggle that has been repeating in the country since its founding.
How can we, as artists, create and present artwork that sparks critical thinking, empowers alternative narratives, and inspires ourselves and our communities to be more aware and
compassionate to the struggle for equity and human rights in America and the world?
