Call to Artists - “Signs of the Times: Artists Respond to the Election”


The Mendocino County Courage Campaign’s Arts Committee will be sponsoring an exhibit at the Mendocino County Arts Council Office on Friday, May 5th.

Exhibit dates: May 5-31, 2017
Opening event: First Friday, May 5, 5-8 p.m.
Exhibit location: Ukiah Depot Lobby, Arts Council of Mendocino County

Deadline for submissions: April 3, 2017

The politics of the moment and what they mean for our nation and the world challenge us in myriad ways. Art offers opportunity for creative response and a forum for discussion.
Courage Arts Action, an affinity group of the Mendocino Courage Campaign, announces a call to artists to submit work that expresses diverse responses to the November election and its consequences. Signs of the Times: Artists Respond to the Election will provide our Mendocino community with a space for public conversation.
The art show, with spoken word and song, will take place as part of Ukiah’s First Friday Art Walk. The exhibit will be assembled around signs collected from post-election marches, including women’s marches in Ukiah, Ft. Bragg, Oakland and elsewhere. Other submissions may include newly created signs, collages, photographs and other visual arts related to the current political climate. All submissions are welcomed. Courage Arts Action retains the right to decline any submission deemed offensive. Our goal is to speak truth to power, to affirm democratic ideals, and to posit a positive vision for our county and the country.

Please email a digital image of your submission to: by April 3, 2017.

Drop off and pick up instructions will be provided when artists are notified about their submission.
