As this exhibit lands smack dab during the month of the 2020 election, we would like to invite Artists of all Mediums to examine how the last 4 years have changed them personally (or not), and express how the actions of this administration has affected you.
As a way to deeply explore this theme, we are releasing this call well in advance to allow not only spontaneous creativity, but deeper reflection..
Historically speaking, great art movements have been spurred during war and politicly heated times. The last 4 years under this administration certainly qualify as a time in which all of us have been changed & affected in some way. It certainly is taking a toll on many of us emotionally and mentally.
EDITED 3/25/20- NOW WITH THE EFFECTS OF COVID 19 WE WOULD ALSO LIKE ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO EXAMINE THIS AS WELL..
Artists are asked to examine how the policies , ideologies & actions which have been taking place for the last 4 years have affected you, your family and perhaps your art practice.
We ask you to refrain from repetitious satirical depictions of Trump, and instead focus on the personal impact which you have felt and how you cope.
After all , Social Media presents us with a daily dose of caricatures & memes.

Deadline to for submissions: Midnight September 5th 2020
