SMJ HOUSE: THE WORK STILL TO DO
Deadline to Apply: February 20th, 2020

We are looking for work that is inspired by the movement towards a more equitable world for the last 100+ years… to help inspire the future generations to continue the work going forward. That is ambiguous and lofty, but we don’t want to get too specific. We want to see what an artist is inspired to create. What does equity and equality mean to you? How do you bring that to life in art? Is that through a painting? is that through sculpture? Is it through fabric? It’s about how you are inspired … and how that inspiration will inspire others.  Click here for artist submission form and more information.
