Protest Signs: Projected Voices of the Community

Anger and grief have gripped our city, our state, and our country. Voices have risen, our community has protested, and demonstrators have created passionate, poignant messages that are projected through their signs. Handmade, printed, painted, drawn with a marker, put on a board…these signs tell a powerful story.

 The Department of Art and Art History CAB Gallery and UNCW’s Office of the Arts are collaborating on a virtual exhibition of these signs. to run July 16 through August 30. The exhibition will be juried, and include an opening day, virtual gallery talk, by Dr. Travis Williams.

 Deadline for submission: July 6th at midnight

Up to Three images per artist

No entry fee

*Gallery space is limited, but we plan to include all the work we can.*
