It is an exhibition to celebrate one's identity and to share one's story. We are looking for artwork that represents all races, ethnicities, nationalities, cultures, immigration stories, etc. This call is an open question and asks artists to interpret it widely when selecting works to submit.

The 1950s have been romanticized in popular culture for some time. In what is considered the "Golden Age" of America, where cold wars, communist scares, and segregation were commonplace, it is worth questioning- what about this era was so great?

INTERVIEWS WITH V I N T A G E ARTISTS
...various pieces in the gallery challenge some of the misconceptions regarding society’s opinions of women, and the talk stressed the importance of continuing to stand up for women and their rights. The night was filled with truly creative and thought provoking energy, where each guest left with an emotional sense of the importance of bringing art into suburban areas to touch upon social issues in demand by the community. The beautiful art displayed throughout the gallery are not just about the aesthetic, but the invitation for each guest to be an instrument of change for social justice and equality.
