Manifest Hope: D.C. Show + Contest Info Posted

Yes, I'm still on vacation in Louisville, but I wanted to go ahead and post all the info about the Manifest Hope: D.C. show now that the press releases have finally gone out and the website has been updated.

I just an hour ago finally purchased my plane ticket to get up there, arriving on Thursday, January 15th, in time for the press/collector preview party on Friday, though I'm not exactly sure how I'm getting home yet because the return flights were outrageously expensive all the way through Friday after the inauguration. (Might try to hitch a ride home, might take the train or rent a car... I'll figure it out.)

But so here's the basics:

Art plays a pivotal role in creating cultural momentum. The MANIFEST HOPE: DC Gallery celebrates that role and shines a spotlight on artists who use their voices to amplify and motivate the grassroots movement that carried President-Elect Barack Obama to victory.

MANIFEST HOPE: DC gathers together a diverse array of the nation’s most talented visual artists under one roof to mark this monumental achievement in our nation’s history and encourages artists and activists to maintain the momentum to bring about true change in the United States.

Along with its partners, MoveOn.org Political Action, the Service Employees International Union and Obey Giant, MANIFEST HOPE: DC, will issue an inspiring visual call-to-action, encouraging a redirection of public energy toward true reform in three key areas:

* Health Care Reform
* Workers’ Rights
* The Green Economy

The MANIFEST HOPE: DC Gallery will be open to the public in Washington, DC for the days preceding the Presidential Inauguration, Saturday, January 17th, 2009 through Monday, January 19th, 2009 between the hours of 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM.

CONTEST

MANIFEST HOPE: DC invites you to show your art in Washington, D.C. during the Presidential Inauguration Celebration alongside some of the most celebrated artists today.

Here is how it works:

MANIFEST HOPE: DC and its partners are offering the public an opportunity to submit art in an online contest, with three chances to win. The contest is comprised of three parts. You can make one submission per category, totaling a maximum of three submissions. The three categories are: Health Care Reform, Workers' Rights and The Green Economy. Submission is quick and simple. Just click HERE to submit images of your original artwork. We will be accepting submissions from Monday, December 22nd, 2008 through 11:59 a.m. EDT on Friday, January 9th, 2009.

Of the submitted works, 15 pieces, 5 from each category, will be selected by our panel of acclaimed judges to show at MANIFEST HOPE: DC in Washington, D.C., which will be open from Saturday, January 17th - Monday, January 19th, 2009 for the days preceding the Presidential Inauguration. Selected works will then be shipped over-night by the artists to the Manifest Hope: DC gallery (shipping costs covered by Manifest Hope: DC).

You can submit any medium of art: painting, sculpture, collage - any 2D or 3D creation that uses positive messaging to convey the urgency and importance of encouraging a national dialogue about the contest's three themes. Please use your creative ideas to help capture the energy we have experienced in this momentous campaign! Also, please make sure to read the guidelines of this contest HERE before submitting your work.

You can read ALL the details yourself on the Manifest Hope: D.C. website. Spread the word, tell your friends, and get to making some hope-ful art!!!
