For many years the LightHouse has supported art exhibitions by artists in our community. This exciting opportunity with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco gives disabled artists the chance to share their work with a larger audience. We encourage all artists to consider submitting.
Call for Entries: Art Slam 2015
Open House and Disability Arts Festival
de Young Museum, San Francisco
Slide Exhibition of Art by Artists with Disabilities
Art Slam 2015 is the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s seventh annual slide exhibition of works by artists with disabilities, developed in partnership with the Access Advisors of the Fine Arts Museums and community members.
Each slide in the exhibition includes an image of one artwork along with a brief artist’s statement. Because July 26, 2015, is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, artists are asked to address the theme of “celebration” in their works and statements for Art Slam 2015.
Art Slam 2015 will be shown in the Koret Auditorium on Saturday, March 14, during the Access Advisors’ Open House and Disability Arts Festival.
Eligibility: Art Slam 2015 is open to all artists with disabilities who are at least eighteen years old. There is no entry fee. Up to 225 entries can be accommodated, and they will be accepted in the order received. Only one artwork per artist will be accepted.
Deadlines: The deadline has been extended. All entries must be postmarked no later than Monday, January 26, 2015. Entries postmarked after this date will not be accepted. Artists will be informed as to whether or not their work will be included in Art Slam by February 13, 2015.
