OPEN CALL

I’m Really Her (Facebook Post).jpg

CALL DETAILS

"I'M REALLY HER” - FREE Entry

$225 in Awards - Juried Exhibition

Manifest Destiny is thrilled to announce a juried open call art exhibition curated by Chanell Angeli. In honor of Women's History Month, we are inviting young female artists between the ages of 10 and 17 to submit their work.

We recognize the significant lack of representation for female artists in the art world, with many exhibitions featuring primarily the work of men. In response, we have created this exhibition to empower and represent young girls, while also highlighting the value of their hard work by offering a cash prize.

Our goal is to instill confidence and foster creative freedom in female artists from a young age so that they feel and know they are really "That Girl", they are "Really Her"! Because we believe that women deserve equal recognition and compensation for their talents, just as our male counterparts do.

At Manifest Destiny, we are dedicated to telling the stories of underserved communities through art and expression. We invite you to apply for this call and help change the narrative.
