Call for Art – We Are All Criminals

In September 2017, MacRostie Art Center and its organizational partners will present “We Are All Criminals,” a series of programs that seeks to challenge society’s perception of criminal records and what it means to be a criminal. The programs will include art exhibits, presentations, theater performances, and educational displays that emphasize personal stories of crime, privilege, justice, and injustice to inspire empathy and ignite social change. We are seeking artwork to display as part of this project, and invite submissions in visual art and writing from individuals who have been or are currently incarcerated. Each artist may submit 1 or 2 pieces. Submissions are due May 31, 2017.
