The Museum of Craft and Design (MCD) has launched a new artist opportunity with “Call & Response: Craft as a Tool for Activism,” a nationwide juried exhibition and artist marketplace. This juried exhibition intends to highlight artists that are working at the crucial intersection of craft and activism, uplifting their political ideals and their communities through their medium of choice.
This open call open to US artists and craftspeople aged 18 and older will culminate in a juried exhibition to be displayed virtually on SFMCD.org starting July 30, 2021. BIPOC artists are encouraged to apply. The winning piece will receive a grand prize of $1,000, the runner-up will receive $500, and the third place will receive $250.
Entry is $5.00, paid directly to SlideRoom for use of their software. The deadline to enter is May 31, 2021. Apply now at sfmcd.org/callandresponse.
