This is an opportunity to see your art featured in an exhibition! Young people ages 13 to 19 are eligible to submit. Chosen submissions will be showcased in an amazing outdoor exhibition, called ARTiculate Our Rights, to be presented at The Forks in Winnipeg next summer in celebration of Manitoba’s 150th anniversary.
Young artists are invited to make their submission online until January 17, 2020.
ARTiculate Our Rights is presented by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and Manitoba 150.
The call for submissions is open until January 17, 2020.
The Museum, in partnership with Manitoba 150, will present the ARTiculate Our Rights outdoor exhibition at the Forks starting in late spring of 2020. The Museum plans to display additional entries in its Expressions gallery on Level 6 from Summer 2020 through Spring 2021.
