LGBTQ+ in 2020-21: OUR Voices Matter
Show your Union PRIDE and submit your entry! We are still accepting artwork entries from all Union College students, faculty, staff, and alumni for the exhibition LGBTQ+ in 2020-21: OUR Voices Matter. The exhibition will be on view in the Nott Memorial at the Wikoff Student Gallery during the Winter and Spring 2021 terms. The originally scheduled fall exhibition was to coincide 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, the 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 is ongoing. 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.
