Call for entries for ‘coming out’ art

BROOKINGS – The Brookings Arts Council's deadline for the Call for Art: “Stories and Spaces: Reclaiming the process of coming out” is approaching.

All entries must be at the Brookings Arts Council by Oct. 22. The opening reception is Oct. 28 at 5:30 p.m.

This exhibition is centered around queer individuals’ stories with coming out and the process and/or ongoing struggle to create spaces to forge their own personal identities.

The exhibit explores the struggle of coming out of the closet and being able to reclaim the process for themselves. Through the art and stories represented artists reflect and reclaim the  space that is held for both trauma, strength and in turn celebrate the juxtaposition of collective identities and stories.

Rules can be found at the Arts Council website,
