The Wikoff Student Gallery is accepting entries through June 30 for “LGBTQ+ in 2020: OUR Voices Matter.”

“We hope to focus the exhibition on LGBTQ+ rights and transgender youth, and encourage entries related to these topics,” said Sarah Mottalini, curatorial assistant at the Mandeville Gallery.

Interested individuals are asked to send an image of their artwork(s) with a statement about the work and a basic description (title, year created, size, medium) to mottalis@union.edu.

Works may include painting, drawing, illustration, sculpture, photography, poetry, short fiction, digital art, film, performance and music. All physical artwork must be ready to hang.

This year marks the ninth “LGBTQ+ at Union” exhibition, a tradition that provides a platform for expression and shared experiences for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, other gender identities and sexually diverse groups, and the ally community.

It is designed to bring awareness and stimulate conversation about the LGBTQ+ campus experience, and to provide an occasion for individuals to share their perspectives with the wider Union community.
