The City of Madison Heights, Michigan Statewide Independent Living
Council and Disability Network Eastern Michigan present: DISABILITY PRIDE ART EXHIBIT.
In recognition of Disability Pride Month and the 33rd Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the City of Madison Heights has issued a Call for Entries for a large-scale art piece and entries for a gallery exhibit celebrating disability rights. The winning artist will develop an engaging, large-scale art concept relevant to disability pride and/or rights, and will outline a process by which members of the local community can participate in the actual creation of the work onsite at the Madison Heights Civic Center Park (360 W. 13 Mile Road) on Saturday, July 22nd. The art piece will ultimately be placed in the Madison Heights Library upon completion.
Artists may also submit works to be considered for display during an exhibit that
runs from July 1 - July 31, 2023, at the Madison Heights Civic Center located at
240 W. 13 Mile Road. Individual artist works can be of any medium and available
for temporary display within an interior gallery space. Pieces should be relevant
to Disability Pride Month and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act anniversary,
family-friendly/appropriate for many ages, and aligned with Madison Heights’
commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Awards will be given for Best in
Show and Viewer’s Choice. Artists may also list their work for sale or not for sale.
The deadline for submission is May 31st.
