Call for Entries: America, The World (Jenkintown, PA)

Call for Entries: America, The World (Jenkintown, PA)

This Deadline Expired: Monday, April 30, 2018

The U.S., more than any other nation, is a melting pot of different cultures. Our modern America was born out of diverse immigration, and has continued to be a destination and safe haven for many in countries all across the globe to settle themselves and their families. There’s a feeling of belonging to one’s own tribe–ethnic, religious, or otherwise–as well as being a part of the overall fabric of America, stitched together by core beliefs of freedom, opportunity, and equality. This diversity of ideas and cultures has been what makes this country extraordinary, inspiring, different, and beautiful, even as we struggle with the division and conflict they have wrought.

Abington Art Center invites artists to submit their photography that responds to or incorporates this theme. Final work will be printed and framed by the artist and dropped off at (or mailed to with return label) the Art Center for hanging.
