SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED!
Sacred Spaces Slideshow
There is still time to submit work for inclusion in Sacred Spaces: A Slideluck Potshow! Be a part of a4's fall 2011 Call & Response mini-series for Locating the Sacred.
The Asian American Arts Alliance (a4) and Slideluck Potshow (SLPS) invite artists to submit photographs, or images of artwork, on the theme "Sacred Spaces."
In this time of deep global uncertainty--economically, politically, culturally--what places enable you to reflect, to make sense of it all, and to find your place in the world? What does "sacred space" mean to you or your community?
The work of the selected artists will be projected inside the majestic Judson Memorial Church, which is home to an extraordinarily diverse congregation and continues to be a bastion for civil rights and spiritual inquiry in these challenging times.
New Submission Deadline: September 2, 2011
