Call & Response: Craft as a Tool for Activism

The Museum of Craft and Design (MCD) has launched a new artist opportunity with "Call & Response: Craft as a Tool for Activism," a nationwide juried exhibition and artist marketplace.

The national reckoning for social justice spurred by protests and the Black Lives Matter movement has made clear that all museums and arts organizations must do better to represent, engage, financially support, and communicate with their BIPOC communities. This juried exhibition intends to highlight artists that are working at this crucial intersection of craft and activism, uplifting their political ideals and their communities through their medium of choice.

This open call to artists and craftspeople aged 18 and older, throughout the United States, will culminate in a juried exhibition to be displayed virtually on SFMCD.org starting July 30, 2021. The winning piece will receive a grand prize of $1,000, the runner-up will receive $500, and the third place will receive $250.
