Minnesota Artists Gallery
"Art of Democracy: Tools of Persuasion" is an open call for Minnesota artists to express their political opinions through original works of art in an exhibition coinciding with the 2004 presidential election.
The exhibition's call-for-entries specifies formats for political ephemeral objects including lawn signs, posters, bumper stickers, T-shirts, flyers, magnets, pins, and infomercials. Artists are encouraged to submit one work of art weekly for the run of the exhibition, which will change as new work is installed. The concept was developed by the 2002-2003 Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program (MAEP) panel.
For more information, call the MAEP office at (612) 870-3125.
An online response to the exhibition, The Art of Democracy: Tools of Persuasion has been created by the Visual Art Critics Union of Minnesota (V.A.C.U.M.).
