Entries are accepted on FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS.
Call Opens: February 1, 2016 The call will close when we have received a maximum of 200 entries, or February 20, 2016, whichever comes first.
There is no charge to enter The Women and Money Project. The Minnesota Women’s Caucus for Art is funding application entries.
The Women and Money Project, is looking for art created by self-identified women artists that addresses, investigates and explores contemporary social, political and economic issues related to women’s relationship with money. We are seeking art that expresses the women’s viewpoint on money issues defined by their gender, culture, age, and issues of societal control. The perspective can range from literal to poetic, abstract to representational, psychological to social and political commentary. This exhibition will open new dialogue regarding the myriad ways women artists and their peers view their relationship with money in today’s culture and society. Artists are encouraged to interpret this theme broadly and submit works that have resonance and meaning.
February 1 Entry acceptance begins. Entries will be reviewed on a first come first serve basis. The call will close February 20, OR when we have received a maximum of 200 entries.
