Art for Social Change:  We Are Enough

Oak Park Art League  Juried Exhibition

Submission Deadline: AUGUST 24
Public Reception: OCTOBER 13

As part of the Oak Park Art League’s Art for Social Change initiative, We are Enough calls for art that explores the many facets of body image and its relationship to self-acceptance and love. How is one’s body image affected by inherent differences such as race, gender, sexuality, form and disability; or by changes due to aging, illness, or major surgery? We are looking for art of any media that explores issues of body image and self-worth.
Related exhibits will include a display of plaster cast busts of breast cancer survivors, customized by Chicago-area artists, plus an interactive installation for cancer survivors to contribute offerings or messages to an effigy in the form of a traditional Madonna.

Submission fee: $12 per entry (Artists may submit up to six entries @ $12 each)
Submission fee increases to $15 per entry after August 1st.
