THE CONNECT Database
The CONNECT is Inclusion in Art’s database of working professional artists of color. Outreach to minority artists has been difficult despite the best efforts of organizations. By providing a centralized database we are helping organizations find these artists and connect with them! Here’s a small preview:
CALL TO ARTISTS OF COLOR
Inclusion in Art will begin maintaining a dedicated page on their website for a featured Oklahoma visual artist of color beginning in January 2018. This page will serve as a virtual gallery for the selected artist that will include 5 – 10 samples of the artist’s most recent work and statements from the artist. Inclusion in Art will promote the displayed work via social media and through their website. Artist’s will be selected quarterly. Our goal is to give Oklahoma artists of color another opportunity to promote and share their work outside of a physical gallery space. We encourage artists of color at all stages of their careers to apply.
Deadline to apply for the 1st quarter is 1/12/2018. There is no fee to apply.
Please email all requirements from the list below to InclusioninArtSubmissions@gmail.com with the subject line as follows: Featured 1-2018 – First and Last name.
Bio (Include ethnicity/race)
5 – 10 Images/Video Samples (Please include only the work you wish to be featured)
(Images/Samples must be numbered and labeled by first and last initial. ex. “IA003”)
