Deadline June 04, 2023

This exhibition is being curated by Daren Todd & Steph Littlebird, the guest leaders of the MAC Gallery Committee this year. It will be on display July 28 – September 2, 2023 and fill the gallery and lobby exhibition spaces of the Multnomah Arts Center. Black artists from Oregon and Southwestern Washington are invited to respond to this Call.

“We are living in a time where our history is being erased, distorted, and ignored on many levels – through our education system, in the courts, and permeating into our daily lives through the media we consume. As artists, we find ourselves in a unique position. At a time when the academicians, historians, reporters, and others are being silenced, I believe we have an opportunity to use our work to express and preserve what is being erased. “Black History is History” calls on Black artists from the Pacific Northwest to reflect on the Black experience and to use their work in the continued fight for Black civil rights.” –Daren Todd

Each artist is invited to submit up to 3 pieces of work for consideration. Visual artwork can be 2d or 3D. Submissions from filmmakers, musicians, writers, and artists working in other media are also welcome.

The deadline to apply is midnight on Sunday, June 4. Please click the link below for more information or to apply. We look forward to seeing your work!
