How does the art you make help to define and empower you? This exhibit seeks to explore how self-expression can lead to self-determination in a time when nonbinary identities and individuals are fighting for their voice and autonomy. artEAST is interested in pieces that discuss how art can help traditionally oppressed and marginalized people empower themselves. artEAST will accept both 2-D and 3-D art from any artist but will give special consideration to queer and POC artists. Submitted art should explore themes of identity and make a statement about the artist’s own self-actualization in the face of injustice. Submissions close January 22, 2018.
