The Wikoff Student Gallery is currently accepting entries for the exhibit, “LGBTQ+ in 2021: OUR Voices Matter.”

Accepted artworks will be shown in the gallery, located on the third floor of the Nott Memorial, during fall term. All students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to enter.

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

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

Submissions are being accepted on an ongoing basis.

This year marks the ninth “LGBTQ+ at Union” exhibit, which 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.

The show 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.
