Member Call For Art

WCA Philadelphia presents:
ART IN THE AGE OF INJUSTICE
April 2nd - 29th
Entry Deadline: February 27th
“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice,
but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." -Elie Wiesel
Artists have always been interested in creating work, in all media, that addresses the social, political, and environmental issues of their times. A society’s artists are often the first to confront the biggest challenges facing its citizens, often through provocative means. Artists are invited to submit work that addresses injustice from any time period. The artwork may also point to the broader theme of art and injustice, by focusing on a particular artist or movement.
The Women's Caucus for Art, Philadelphia Chapter (WCA) is pleased to announce an open call to all WCA Northeast Region Members and Non-Members (WCA chapters are listed as NH, Central Mass., Boston, NYC, Philadelphia). All media considered.
JUROR Mary Salvante has been working in the visual arts for over 20 years as a curator and arts administrator with a focus on visual art program development and planning of trans-disciplinary curatorial projects, public art installation programs, and artist in residence programs. Successful projects include her NEA award winning work as founding director of the environmental art program at The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. Now in its fifteenth year, the program was the first of its kind in Philadelphia and introduced ecological art installations and artist in residence programs to the public. Established funding with the NEA, William Penn, PA Council on the Arts, and Mid Atlantic Arts foundations. As Gallery Director at Rowan University, Mary has transitioned the Rowan University Art Gallery from a locally focused program to one now with regional impact through the curation of innovative contemporary art exhibitions resulting in Citation of Excellence Awards from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
