2nd Annual Show Your Pride – call for artists

2nd annual Show Your Pride


‘Show Your Pride’ is an exhibit designed to celebrate and showcase the art of LGBTQIA+ artists in honor of National Pride Month. The subject matter of the artwork does NOT have to be LGBTQIA+ themed, but we welcome work that expresses authentic viewpoints of LGBTQIA+ experiences, underscoring identity, lifestyle, and diversification. Show us what your Pride looks like!

Open to all 2-D and 3-D mediums. At this time, we are unable to accept electronic media.

‘Show Your Pride’ will be juried by Yo Ahn Han.

Yo Ahn Han is a visual artist from the Republic of Korea. He has received his BFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago and MFA from MassArt. Han is teaching at MassArt as an assistant Professor and RISD as a visiting Lecturer.
