Aquí Estamos y No Nos Vamos – Women of Color Art Exhibit – Call for Submissions

CALL TO ARTISTS!!! This exhibit hopes to explore the following questions and more: If you feel your art provides a path to healing, how does it do it? Does your art counter the hateful rhetoric currently circulating, if so how? Does your artwork give voice to a resistance, yours and/or something larger? Does your artwork offer a creative vision as we find ourselves struggling under a possible fascist state?

If you feel like your artwork doesn’t necessarily answer these questions, but still speaks to how you are navigating today’s social landscape, please feel free to submit.
