VCFA and VSC are united in their belief that the arts are central to the human experience and have the ability not only to reflect reality but to also create it. This call invites alums of both organizations to submit artwork in any media that was created in response to our current contemporary political upheaval. This may be articulated either literally or metaphorically as an expression of the potential of creativity to shift consciousness. All progress and change has been achieved through a radical reimagining of what is and what could be. We are seeking a vision of a future that has yet to be determined, understood, or adopted by any position of power or control.

Gallery hours are Monday - Wednesday by appointment only, and Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The gallery will be closed Friday, May 25. If you would like to make an appointment to view the show outside of gallery hours, please contact Brittany M. Powell: [email protected] and/or Thatiana Oliveira: [email protected]
