Go For Broke National Education Center H.R. 422 Call for Artists

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, Go For Broke National Education Center (GFBNEC) will host H.R. 442: Nisei Veterans and the Fight for Civil Liberties, a temporary exhibition highlighting stories of Japanese American World War II veterans and their instrumental role in the fight for redress. To accompany the temporary exhibition, GFBNEC is searching for two or three local artists to create new pieces inspired by the Nisei veterans’ lasting influence on the redress movement.

Two-dimensional proposals of drawings/sketches, images, or renderings along with a brief statement (~250 words) may be submitted for consideration. Final pieces to be exhibited may be three-dimensional. Please note the physical exhibition space is limited. GFBNEC staff will work with the artists’ proposals on size restrictions on an individual basis. At the conclusion of the exhibition, all pieces will be auctioned off at the annual Evening of Aloha gala dinner. GFBNEC is offering a $500 stipend to each selected artist.

The exhibition will run from Saturday, August 4, 2018 through Sunday, September 16, 2018.
