Strive: A National Exhibition Highlighting American Immigration and the American Dream


CALL FOR ARTISTS OPEN, CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT

Description: Strive is a national juried exhibition featuring art that highlights immigration in America and the long admired endeavor of obtaining the American Dream. This country was formed on immigrants seeking new opportunities, democracy, civil liberties, and both religious, and political freedom. The topic of immigration has been discussed in almost every news cast over the last two years and continues to be at the center of mush discussion and debate in the United States. Strive will feature work that depicts various topics surrounding American immigration both throughout American history and in today’s society, spanning from those who initially came to the United States seeking the American Dream (and those who currently are in the process of doing so today), all the way to refugees looking for a safe haven. This exhibition is open to all 2D, 3D, fine art, and fine crafts, and is open to all artists living in the United States. You do not have to be an immigrant to submit work to the exhibition. This exhibition will be juried by Solomon Isekeije, and curated by d’Art Center Staff. The d’Art Center is Norfolk’s thirty-year-old art center and includes working professional artist studios and provides a wide variety of exhibitions and programming open to the public. The d’Art Center is located in the NEON district of Norfolk.
