LGBTQ+ in 2020: OUR Voices Matter
*The DEADLINE for entries is now ONGOING. Now accepting artwork entries from all Union College students, faculty, staff, and alumni for the exhibition LGBTQ+ in 2020: OUR Voices Matter. Our current plans are to exhibit the accepted artworks in the Nott Memorial at the Wikoff Student Gallery during the Fall 2020 or Winter 2021 term (may be adjusted according to projected campus plans), coinciding with the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote and the 50th anniversary of women at Union College, as well as the Presidential Election in November. To celebrate this momentous synchronicity, this year’s exhibition hopes to focus on LGBTQ+ rights and legislation and spotlight transgender youth. Entries related to these topics are encouraged.
Send an image of your artwork(s) (painting, drawing, illustration, sculpture, photography, poetry, short fiction, digital art, film, performance, music, etc.) with a statement about the work, as well as a basic description (title, year created, size, medium) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*DEADLINE EXTENDED. Due to the changing situation, we will be accepting submissions on an ongoing basis.
“LGBTQ+” is an acronym used to refer to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, other gender identities and sexually diverse groups, and the ally community. The year 2020 will mark the ninth LGBTQ+ at Union exhibition, a tradition which began in 2008 and provides a platform for expression for students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Through shared experiences, members of the Union community continue to learn and grow, and bring awareness to the LGBTQ+ experience at Union College. The goals of the exhibition are to stimulate conversation, educate the campus community on the topic of LGBTQ+ life at Union, and provide an occasion for LGBTQ+ individuals and Allies to share their perspectives.
*Artwork must be “ready to hang”/exhibit prior to installation dates chosen by the gallery.
**Artists are responsible for shipment or delivery of their artwork to the gallery.
