For many years the LightHouse has supported art exhibitions by artists in our community. The following opportunity will give visually impaired artists the chance to show their work to a larger audience, so we encourage all interested artists to consider submitting their work.
The slide exhibition of art by artists with disabilities has been developed in partnership with the Access Advisors of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Art and Disabilities Network.
The theme for Art Slam 2012 is Disability: Experience, Feelings, Politics and Realities. Artists are asked to address that theme in their work and statement, if possible. The show will include one work and a brief artist’s statement that will be screened alongside each artwork.
Art Slam 2012 will be shown in the Koret Auditorium at the de Young Museum on March 31, 2012, during the Access Advisors Open House and Disability Arts Festival. There will be a preliminary screening on March 29, 2012. Thereafter, Art Slam will be available on the de Young Museum website.
There is no entry fee. Art Slam 2012 is open to all artists with disabilities who are at least 18 years old.
All entries must be postmarked no later than January 31, 2012. Only 200 entries can be accommodated, and the art will be accepted in the order received. By February 15, 2012, artists will be informed if their work is to be included in Art Slam.
