Open Call: Moving Forward When the World Stopped: Queer Life 2020 – 2021

This Deadline Expired: Friday, March 19, 2021

Exhibition Information:
The William Way Arts Committee invites artists to submit work that focuses on individual and shared experiences from the past year. Submissions that depict every aspect of the events of 2020-2021, including the pain and loss through the pandemic, the continued fight for racial justice, and growing concern over politics and policy, as well as imagery that shows the rebuilding of hope, community, and strength are welcomed. The aim of this exhibition is to present a timeline of our communities’ experiences throughout the unforgettable year of 2020 and the beginning of 2021.

Artwork requirements:
All media accepted – 2D and 3D artwork, as well as video work.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all art exhibitions at William Way will be online only until further notice.

The Art Gallery at the William Way LGBT Community Center exclusively exhibits work by artists who self-identify as LGBTQ. Your work need not be explicitly LGBTQ-focused. We are interested in artistic perspectives on the breadth of human experience by LGBTQ people.
