Amidst the fervor surrounding the upcoming 2024 presidential election, we stand at a pivotal moment in our nation's history. We believe that it is crucial to create a space for productive and thought-provoking discussions about the future of our country. In this bold exhibition, we encourage artists from all disciplines to explore the  curiosities that bud from the current state of American politics. We are interested in the diverse narratives that come from art making in our contemporary political landscape. 

Through your artistic reflections, we hope to harness the power of creativity to ignite conversations, challenge perspectives, and identify common threads. In embracing this taboo theme of politics, we are asserting and strongly believe that art has the potential to transcend ideological boundaries and stimulate dialogue that can drive our community forwards. 

This national exhibition is open to artists working in all mediums and of all skill levels.
