Open Call For Artists — “Having Our Say” Exhibition with Philadelphia Theatre Company

Deadline for submission: Jan. 16, 2017

We are pleased to announce our partnership with Philadelphia Theatre Company during the run of the play “Having Our Say” — a play adapted from the book written by the Delany sisters, African American women who were both civil rights activists and groundbreakers in the fight for equality in this country. Their sharp memories show us the post-Reconstruction South and Booker T. Washington, Langston Hughes, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Paul Robeson. Bessie breaks barriers to become a dentist; Sadie quietly integrates the New York City system as a high school teacher. Their extraordinary story makes an important contribution to our nation’s heritage—and an indelible impression on our lives.

We are honored to be curating a special exhibition that will highlight our struggles to overcome barriers. We are soliciting artwork that speaks to struggle, pride in your culture or other cultures, and speaks to people overcoming barriers. All submissions will be juried. Each artist may submit no more than two pieces ($15 per submission), with a total space, per artist, up to 4’ x 4’. No work requiring pedestals can be accepted.

The exhibition will run January 27th to February 19th, with a Community Open House and Exhibition Opening on Saturday, February 4th from 4pm to 8pm.

This summer, the focus is on Philadelphia as the city hosts the Democratic National Convention. The theme of the convention is “Let’s Make History Again.” In 2008, over 131 million Americans voted, the most ever for a presidential election, and the highest rate in 40 years. Can this be surpassed in 2016? 

The City’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy has invited the Mt. Airy Art Garage (and other nonprofit arts organizations) to participate in VOTE, a nonpartisan exhibit highlighting cultural organizations from different neighborhoods to create works that encourage voting. City Hall is expecting a flood of visitors from all over the country. This is an opportunity for MAAG member artists to weigh in on why voting in this year’s election is so critical. Not a member yet? This could be a good time to join. 

The Mt. Airy Art Garage will curate a display case where we are asking you to create a work(s) of art that includes the word “VOTE” or speaks why voting is critical to you. The works can be photographic, sculptural, found object mixed media, graphic signage, installation, etc. Your work cannot be supportive or be critical of a specific candidate or party. The content can focus on issues, the arts and/or on voting.

$15 jurying fee, per piece, for MAAG members. Pay directly below. (Please note that online payment includes a small service fee).
