About The Event
OPEN CALL FOR ENTRY: In coordination of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and World Pride, we’re holding an open call to artists to submit work for our June show Amor es Amor: Celebrating the LGBTQ community within Chicanisma/o.
SIGN UP PROCESS: Email artwork images (JPG format) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Call (303) 571-0440 if you have any questions!
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 5/20 - All work submitted must be eligible for sale.
THEME: In a first-of-its-kind exhibition, CHAC is celebrating the LGBTQ within Chicanisma/o. At a time when many messages are focused on what separates us, Amor es Amor is a bold step in sharing what we have in common.
Without ignoring historical friction between the two communities, the exhibition acknowledges the many similar experiences endured by Chicana/o and LGBTQ people. Defined by a history where oppression and violence led to a lack of visibility, both celebrate their strength in community, self-reliance, and family; and capacity for love through vibrant visual art, writing, music and dance.
Artists of all identifications are welcome to submit works that celebrate and are inspired by the LGBTQ and Chicana/o cultures.
