Local Artists Recognized by ArtWorks Hero Design Company
Earlier this year, we asked the community to nominate local heroes—those who are working behind the scenes using their talents, courage, creativity, and generosity to meet the many challenges our community has faced this year.

As part of the Hero Design Company, ArtWorks Youth Apprentices this summer designed and sewed custom one-of-a-kind flags while safe at home to honor and bring attention to local heroes whose selfless acts set them apart. The team was led by professional artist Lindsey Whittle. The team’s work was flown during an installation on Central Parkway in September

Nominees included a diverse group of individuals including artists such as Radha Lakshmi, Da'Mon Butler, Tia Brown and others.

Pretrial Justice Initiative | New Grant Opportunity
The Pretrial Justice Institute (PJI) is calling all Ohio-based artists, musicians, writers, filmmakers, performers and other creatives. Your voice (and work) are needed in the movement to end mass incarceration in the Buckeye State and beyond.

The purpose of this grant is to use the arts as a way of engaging and educating everyday Ohioans around the issues of bail reform, racial equity, and community wellness. Your work, if selected, will be featured in an online gallery—part of a sleek, new microsite hosted by the Pretrial Justice Institute (PJI)—and used as inspiration for a series of community conversations and self-care/art-making events focused on racial healing in early 2021. The deadline to apply is December 7, 2020.

Manifest Gallery | Open Call for Entries for Regional Showcase
Manifest Gallery has opened a call for submissions from artists in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana. This three-state-region exhibit has no defined expectation for type, media, or style of work to be considered or selected. THIS IS AN OPEN CALL. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual or experimental. The only criteria for entry is that works must qualify as works of visual art in the broadest sense of the term made by artists currently living in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana.
