12/14/16 – Moraine Valley Community College Art, Culture, and Identity Grant call for submissions

Moraine Valley Community College’s Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery is now accepting exhibition proposals for the 2017-2018 season with one exhibition funded by the Building Bridges: Arts, Culture, and Identity grants program. The space is located in the Fine and Performing Art Center in the Southwest suburbs of Chicago.  

The call is open to all artists, and as part of the Building Bridges: Arts, Culture, and Identity grants program for the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art, one exhibition during the season will highlight the work of a Muslim-American artist. The work should have a focus on an exploration of narratives related to being Muslim in America. A small stipend is included.  

The proposal should be submitted as a zip file to mcdermottr8@morainevalley.edu and include a cover letter outlining the exhibition proposal and artist statement, CV, portfolio of proposed or recent works (15-20 jpegs), and an image list. 

The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2017, and artists will be notified in early March.
