Calling all Louisiana artists of all genres! Louisiana Artists for Puerto Rico needs your talent to help support El Departamento De La Comida’s (https://www.fondoderesilienciapuertorico.org) mission to rebuild 200 farms on Puerto Rico in 24 months.
It has been months since the island of Puerto Rico was ravished by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Portions of the island remain without electricity and relief efforts are very much still in emergency phases. The island secures income via tourism, manufacturing, and agriculture. With manufacturing and tourism stalled due to recovery, many Puerto Ricans are struggling to rebuild their lives. Restoring agriculture gives people on the island short term and long term sustainability.
Anyone interested in volunteering their talents for the statewide fundraising event to be held in partnership with the Baton Rouge Gallery on Sept. 15, 2018, should submit an artist resume and performance video to Leslie D. Rose, Louisiana Artists for Puerto Rico chairperson at LeslieDanielleRose@gmail.com, no later than July 15 for consideration. Donations of artwork and literature may also be submitted to be auctioned off at the event, deadline August 30. Please do not let the lack of video or resume stop you from contacting us. We just want to know we have the best talent working towards this goal -- we can work something out if you're interested in contributing. First priority will be given to Latinx artists.
This is a call for a Juried Show. Artists have used their voice to shed light on social, historical and political issues throughout history - Daumier providing commentary on the politics of 19C France; Picasso’s Guernica bringing attention to the horrors of the Spanish Civil War; Harlem Renaissance artists shedding light on the African American Experience; WPA artists illustrating life in the Great Depression and the plight of the poor.
We are living in a period where it seems like people are finding their voice, and yet there is no conversation. The dialogue between disparate voices is not happening. Art can provide an opening to the discourse by showing issues through a new perspective and telling stories through a voice you hadn’t yet heard. We would like to hear YOUR voice, sharing your perspective. Our intention with this show is to give voice to the full spectrum of stories and experience. Through a series of gallery talks and community discussions we hope to start a dialogue to promote understanding.
We look forward to displaying 2-D and 3-D works as well as audio and video work, however audio/visual technology will need to be provided by the artist. We have outdoor display area for exterior sculpture.
