Art Exhibition – February 4-20, 2014
Reception – February 6, 2014 5:30-7:30pm
Artists Arise! Polk State College is hosting a National Juried Art Exhibition in reaction to the staggering facts regarding Violence against women. One Billion Rising is named for a troubling statistic, that one in three women, or an estimated 1 billion women, will be physically abused in her lifetime. Polk State College is calling for artwork concerning Women’s Rights and ending violence against women, from every perspective. The gallery is accepting submissions that expose both the stories of violence and also the victories in overcoming violence. Artist interpretations of this topic can be abstract or literal. We want to see stories of struggle, empowerment, and victory. Students, local, and professional artists of any gender are encouraged to apply.
