Attention Long Island teachers and students! You are encouraged to submit a piece of work for the Embracing Our Differences Art Exhibition. Artists are encouraged to submit works relevant to Long Island. The works that are chosen must address the themes below, but they will also be evaluated on how effectively they will be read outdoors when the art is enlarged to billboard size (16 feet wide by 12 feet high).
Artists are encouraged to interpret and explore:
- the struggles and joys of living in a diverse community;
- the impact on human dignity of prejudice and hatred;
- the varied people, cultures and perspectives in our world.
The deadline for submissions is May 22, 2009.
The release form can be downloaded here.
