Exhibition Call Title

THEME

Artists have always responded to social conditions and justice. The call to artists will stress this and ask artist to respond to social justice issues including Black Lives Matter, Diversity, Inclusion, Accessibility, Equity, and equal, LGBTQ+, and woman’s rights as well as environmental issues such as global warming. These are the focus of today’s headlines – this exhibition will be timely. We will pose these questions to artists: How can and do artists address these issues? How does your artwork make us consider these issues in a new light? How do the events of the past year—BLM, COVID inequities—affect your art/change your focus?
