Call to Artists

The theme of this exhibit is inspired by the play, Good People, that explores social class in America and how the divide influences perceptions and stereotypes. Questions posed by the play that can also be explored in the artworks are: What do we deserve? If we are good, do we deserve good things? Will good things happen to us? Are we products of our choices or of good luck? A script of the play can be found at www.1qct.org. Artwork will not be judged on how closely it aligns with the play itself but rather on artistic merit and fit of the overall theme.
