Mosesian Center for the Arts (MA), International Call for Artists: We the People
Deadline: October 1st, 2019
The Mosesian Center for the Arts (MCA) seeks artwork for its upcoming fall exhibition called We The People. Much like the Constitution that this preamble originates from, We The People aims to find unity in the commonalities between people and establish a narrative surrounding what it means to be an artist in America today. This phrase implies a shared understanding we all have that an inclusive embrace of our differences often makes a stronger bond between individuals and creates a more harmonious democracy of ideas and actions.
The MCA seeks artwork in all forms and mediums that addresses concepts of personal identity, migration, national identity, heritage, and race. This exhibition will present the public with a dialogue surrounding the enduring relevance of the principles that guided the creation of the US Constitution and made America a nation of individuals seeking opportunity and change.
Eligibility: Artists regardless of location are welcome to apply, including international artists. Local artists will be provided drop off time and date details upon acceptance. Non-local selected artists work must be received at the Mosesian Center for the Arts, 321 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA 02472 c/o exhibitions by November 9th, 2019. Non-local artists are responsible for shipping costs both to and from the MCA, unless other arrangements are made, and are responsible for insuring their work while in transit. If shipping work, each artist must provide a pre-paid, UPS or FedEx return shipping label including insurance. Please pack your work in sturdy reusable packaging. The Mosesian Center for the Arts carries appropriate insurance to cover all artwork in the show for the duration of the exhibition, including the time frame of drop-off, installation, de-installation and pick-up.
Submission Fee: $10 per submission. Limit 5 submissions per artist.
