Manifesting Beloved Community

Exhibition dates: January 10 to March 4, 2023
Reception: January 13, 2023 from 7 to 8:30pm

West Windsor Arts Council and Art Against Racism, (both 501(c)(3) organizations), have invited artists to submit artwork for “Manifesting Beloved Community” a juried exhibition of work exploring the relationship of community health with race, racism, and efforts to create an antiracist society.

“Manifesting Beloved Community” invites artists to visualize what it means to create or live in a nation or world designed around social and economic justice beyond the ills of structural racism. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Beloved Community” represents a global vision where all people share in the wealth of a healed planet. We ask that artists explore one or more themes in their work that relate to:

  • Economic justice
  • Healthcare
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • The environment
  • Cultural expression

Selected work will also be shown in online galleries at Artagainstracism.org and WestWindsorArts.org
