Call for Art: Young Women's Caucus
The Female Perspective “The Bedroom”
- Young Women’s Caucus 2011 Calendar Publication -
Open Call for Entry
The Young Women’s Caucus is publishing a 2011 Calendar on the theme of the bedroom. We hope to incorporate a variety of responses on the topic from the female perspective. Proceeds from the calendar will be sold to help fund the Young Women’s Caucus and their events.
Artwork will be chosen for the calendar to fill 12 full monthly pages and a cover. Artists chosen for the calendar will receive national recognition with their artwork and artist statement.
The Young Women’s Caucus (YoungWC) is an internal Caucus of the Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA). The mission of YoungWC is to provide resources, connections and support for all young women art students/artists. It is a national network for exchanging ideas, sharing opportunities, and promoting reflection and discussion about women’s issues in a fun and creative way.
