Description of Theme

Social justice includes a variety of topics focused on inequality, including: gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socio-economic

status; poverty; racial profiling; the criminal justice system; immigration; access to education and healthcare, child welfare, and

more. Art can inspire, educate, spark discussion, transform lives, and engender change, so it is no surprise that social justice issues

are frequently the subject matter and concern of artists.


Eligibility & Media

The exhibition is open to artists living in the U.S. and working in any and all media. Entries must represent original works of art or

design, and should have a clear connection to the theme. The exhibition will include a range of traditional and non-traditional genre

and media, including: video, sculpture, photography, painting, drawing and printmaking.


Juror: Susan Crile

Susan Crile is a painter and printmaker whose work has been featured in more than 50 solo exhibitions internationally, and whose

work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Brooklyn Museum of Art,

and The Hirshhorn Museum, among others. She has taught at Princeton University and Sarah Lawrence College, and currently is a

professor at Hunter College, CUNY, where she has been on faculty since 1982. Crile lives and works in New York City.
