Guns: Loaded Conversations (deadline October 31)
An enormous divide exists between people who cherish their heritage of gun ownership and others who are concerned that guns contribute to the rising tide of gun violence. We must find a way to bridge this divide and talk openly and honestly about potential solutions while at the same time respecting legitimate uses for firearms. Artists are encouraged to submit work likely to spark a conversation on some aspect of the theme. Open to all-SAQA members - opens at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.
