Call for Entries: Justice (League) Print Portfolio Exchange

September 24, 2015

Justice (League) print portfolio exchange

St. Ambrose University is seeking participants in a print portfolio exchange exploring the topic of Justice. The prints in the portfolio will portray the fight for social justice in the visual language of comics, graphic novels, and zines. We encourage artists to explore the broad spectrum of the fight for justice from the common and everyday reality to the global and even fantastical. The portfolio will be exhibited in the Morrissey Gallery in late February of 2016. The portfolio is open to all printmaking media and there is no participation fee. The Morrissey Gallery is a set of glass-covered showcases outside the entrance to the Allaert Auditorium in the Galvin Fine Arts Building – where performances catering to all ages and diverse audiences are held. Following the exhibition this portfolio will be reserved for exhibition on campus and in the community and a second portfolio will be donated to the university’s Special Collections. The remainder of the editions will be distributed to participating artists.

If you are interested in participating please email the following to Alison Filley filleyalisonm@sau.edu by Oct. 5th
