Title of Artist Call: Open Call for Artists - Juried Show 'Home'
Organization: Lubeznik Center for the Arts
Call Summary: Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) in Michigan City, IN has issued an open call for Home, a national juried exhibition. Submissions to Home are open to artists whose work investigates the concept in a variety of ways. Possibilities include artwork about shelter, family, immigration, homelessness, nostalgia, architecture, domesticity and the planet we all share, Earth! Artists are the authors of culture and history. The theme of Home is provoking enough, and for some takes on a whole new meaning within the current political discourse. I look forward to the broad response this show will evoke.
…CarolAnn Brown Curator of Exhibitions, LCA Selecting the artworks from the submissions are guest jurors Emanuel Aguilar and Julia Fischbach, the principals of Patron Gallery, Chicago.
