The Northern Michigan University Students’ Art Gallery is accepting submissions for an upcoming juried exhibition titled “Citizenship of the Body.” All media are welcome and pieces may be submitted for free through Thursday, March 23. Students’ works should reflect upon issues raised by the 2017 NMU Diversity Common Reader selection, Citizen: An American Lyric, by Claudia Rankine. The book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in 21st century daily life and in the media.
The exhibition will explore varying experiences surrounding what it means to be a citizen and how people are perceived as citizens. It will be on display from March 27 through April 29 in the Students’ Art Gallery in the University Center, with an official opening celebration at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 6. Cash prizes will be awarded.
