Open Call For Artists – America Undone

Deadline for Submissions: October 3rd

The Philadelphia Theatre Company, at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, in partnership with the Mt. Airy Art Garage Gallery, is now accepting applications to exhibit your work.

The Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG) is holding an open call for artists to submit for “America Undone;” two separate gallery opportunities happening this October at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre (480 S. Broad Street) and the MAAG Gallery (6622 Germantown Avenue). We encourage artists to submit up to two pieces of work to be on display and for sale in these upcoming shows.

America Undone will be the first of three exhibits MAAG will mount at The Philadelphia Theatre Company this year. America Undone will accompany the production of Sweat, which will run October 12 – November 4, 2018. Sweat tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on a factory floor in Reading, PA. However, when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat. “One of the hardest jobs anyone can have is the job of being poor,” said Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage. “To survive from day to day is an epic struggle to find a way to feed yourself, clothe yourself, put a roof over your head. It is the most Herculean path when you have nothing.”
