Call for Art

Art submissions for the 2019 Art Auction will open in Summer 2019. Please read the submission guidelines in full and check back soon for up-to-date information about the event.

2018 Guidelines:

  • Art should be 2D and ready to hang, or a small sculpture - please be sure to include accurate dimensions in your submission form

  • Artists should plan on transporting their piece(s) to the venue - more details about drop-off coming soon

  • Artists may submit up to three original pieces; however, each piece should have its own submission form

  • An image of each piece should be emailed to art@lavenderrightsproject.org after the form has been submitted (photos of multiple pieces can be sent in the same email)

  • Artists who submit by the priority deadline will be notified of submission acceptance or denial by Friday, November 16, 2018

  • Lavender Rights Project reserves the right to exclude pieces based on number of submissions and venue space; content that is anti-black, racist, xenophobic, ableist, or otherwise not in alignment with the organization’s core values of social justice and liberation for all; or other factors which will be communicated directly to the artist by LRP staff

  • Note: While we will not ask for the identities of artists who submit a form, we would like this auction to focus on supporting the experiences, realities, and talents of LGBTQ+ folks. Please be mindful of this when submitting art for this event.
