Open to artists 13 years of age and older living in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area.
UrbArts relies on our curators for planning exhibitions and artwork selection. While the submission process is open to all, we hold space for artists of color, particularly Black artists. Given that, who the artist is does not factor into the selection of work. How the work responds to the theme and space availability are top considerations.
All works must include a title, year, medium, dimensions, display preference, artist’s bio and brief statement along with an image of the work for consideration.
All art must be ready to install and be delivered to our gallery by Feb 6th.
We do not censor artwork. Given the nature of this exhibit, we will be mindful of any work that contains any private information of the subject. We strive to hold law enforcement accountable for misconduct but will not dox any perpetrators of violence against citizens. Additionally, works that dehumanize or violate individuals are discouraged. We do not have to use the master’s tools to build a space for creative expression. Still, all Black aesthetics are beautiful and worth experiencing by as abroad an audience as possible.
All exhibits are curated to give platform and opportunity to the marginalized.
All artwork will be reviewed as they are submitted. Early entries will affect placement in the exhibition.
