We the People

Call For Art: We The People


The Mosesian Center for the Arts seeks artwork for its upcoming fall exhibition called We The People. Much like the Constitution that this preamble originates from, We The People aims to find unity in the commonalities between people and establish a narrative surrounding what it means to be an artist in America today. This phrase implies a shared understanding we all have that an inclusive embrace of our differences often makes a stronger bond between individuals and creates a more harmonious democracy of ideas and actions. 
 
The MCA seeks artwork in all forms and mediums that addresses concepts of personal identity, migration, national identity, heritage, and race. This exhibition will present the public with a dialogue surrounding the enduring relevance of the principles that guided the creation of the US Constitution and made America a nation of individuals seeking opportunity and change.
