Art’s Alive Call to Artists
“Vermont Stands With… ; teaching tolerance through art”
Many artists today are deeply committed to making work that addresses pressing social issues and changes the way we perceive the world. While some artists use traditional forms of visual, literary, or performing arts to make work that comments on, responds to, or advocates for the need for change, others are exploring new forms of “social practice” that engages communities in an interactive exchange.
A challenge for this Art’s Alive exhibit is to display innovative art projects that meaningfully engage with issues of advocacy, justice, and community-building. The projects may use art forms such as; visual/conceptual art, photography, creative writing, 3d work or collage. All pieces must be ‘wall ready’ with proper wiring on the backs of wall pieces, or, provide pedestals. Artists are allowed 1-2 pieces.
Social change is both the process and effect of efforts to positively alter societal conditions. It encompasses a range of outcomes; healing, increased awareness, attitudinal change, more diverse and increased civic participation, movement building, and policy change to name just a few.
Please email Sarah@seaba.com with an image of your piece(s) and explanation of the piece by March 13th. Exhibit will be located a Main Street Landings Union Station, 1 Main Street for the month of April.
