Outdoor, socially-distanced art show about voting rights

Call for artists!

Third Estate Art seeks 3-5 artists to participate in an outdoor, socially distanced group show October 21-25 all about voting: “Participatory Democracy: Voting Rights.” We’re looking for work that shows a wide range of experiences with voting. For example, why do you vote? Why don’t you vote? Does your family have a history of fighting for the right to vote, registering people to vote, or escorting folx to the polls? Have you or a loved one experienced voter disenfranchisement? We want to see it all.

To apply, please send images of at least 3-5 works that you’re submitting for the show. Because the show is outside, your work should be sturdy enough to withstand being in the elements for several hours a day and moved back and forth. (We’d never put your work out in the rain or other potentially harmful weather, though!)

If selected to participate, we will pay you $75. We do not charge application fees, hanging fees, or commissions. You may offer your work for sale, and we’ll encourage interested buyers to contact you directly so you can work out payment details.

Finally, a note about COVID-19: We take your safety and our neighbors’ safety very seriously. We offer contactless pickups and drop-offs for art. The entire show will take place outdoors. There will be no opening reception or group gathering; instead, we invite people to experience the show individually any time during open hours. We’ll have masks and hand sanitizer available for anyone who needs them.
