Safe Haven Community Art Show Dec. 4

From a press release:

The Four Elements: “Open your mind, expand your world.”

A community art show sponsored by Safe Haven residents with assistance by students in FAA 391 and artist-activist group U&I Collab.

In an effort to reconsider the social constructions of both an art space and the terminology of “community”, students from the University of Illinois and Safe Haven community members are working together to sponsor a “deconstructed” art show at the Independent Media Center on December 4th from 6-9 pm. The show will also encompass a community potluck.

Art is being sought to display. As a “community” art show, submission of any art form is encouraged. These forms include music, poetry, performance, new media, installation, and the more traditional media of painting and sculpture. Review of submitted art will be handled by Safe Haven. Art carrying an activist message or a reflection on personal ideals will be strongly considered.

Submissions must be made by November 20th at Noon.

For questions or to submit a 2D image and explanation email or call 618.527.6514. In-person submissions can be made at the East St. Louis Action Research Project office: 326 Noble Hall, MC-549, 1209 South Fourth Street; Champaign, IL 61820. Also, if you are interested in volunteering your time as part of the community organizing this show, please be sure to contact us.
