This theme is open to interpretation, but the artwork submitted should in some way be reflective of your artistic practice during the pandemic and recent protests, whether that was similar or different from your artistic practice previously.
The theme of ReAwakening is relevant in both the context of COVID-19 and the history of systemic racism that is and has been tearing at the very seams of our society. It is critically important that whatever shape our society takes post-COVID, it is one where our American society actually fulfills the promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all people.

Submission deadline is June 22nd. For more information, please view the prospectus.
