2nd Annual Telling Our Stories: Veteran Artists in Our Community Open Call for Artwork
October 8 @ 8:00 am - November 1 @ 5:00 pmFree
The WMAI invites all active duty or retired service members, veterans, and reservists to submit art to the upcoming exhibition at the Workhouse Arts Center. The show will feature works representing personal identities of each veteran expressed through their artworks and art pursuits in whatever form that takes. WMAI would like to challenge general assumptions about what a veteran is by opening the conversation about who they are, or what interests them within and beyond that title. The purpose of the show is to create a space for expression and reflection for veterans while sharing and engaging with the campus and larger community. The exhibit will include a variety of media and original artwork. A short bio will be included with the artwork highlighting the Veterans military and artistic background. We open this exhibition on Veterans Day to raise awareness to the fact that Veterans are contributing members of society and of the artistic community.
Only original artwork from active duty or retired service members, veterans, and reservists will be considered.
3D work can not exceed a 15″ foot print. If work is fragile student may be asked to provide a case.
