Call for Art Submissions: 
Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate and affect change around the world. Helena College’s Art Instructor, Seth Roby, in partnership with the Helena College Diversity and Inclusion Committee is 
providing an open call to all students, faculty, and staff for artworks in all mediums that focuses on the theme of social justice. Topics can include but are in no way limited to: racism, ableism, ageism, media representations, cultural appropriations, environmental degradations and impact on Indigenous lands, gender-based violence, religious intolerance, immigration. The call’s aim is to provide artists with an opportunity to create positive, celebratory, intellectually engaging, and provocative works. This juried exhibition will go on display April 1st with a featured opening to the artists and the Helena community on Thursday April 4th and will close on May the 3rd.  Click on the PDF for more detailed instructions:  Helena College Social Justice Art Call
