Open Call: Vote for Democracy

March 18 @ 8:00 am - May 13 @ 11:59 pm

SaveArtSpace has partnered with Michele Pred to bring more public art to Milwaukee, WI during the Republican National Convention, starting June 24, 2024.

Curated by Michele Pred, this billboard art exhibition featuring five billboards in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, coinciding with the Republican National Convention, which is scheduled for July 15th to 18th. The billboards will be installed prior to the convention on June 24th and remain until July 22nd, a few days after its close.

The overarching theme of the exhibit is the “preservation of democracy.” Autocracy and the reactionary, racist ideas that go with it are on the march in the US and across the globe. They are given voice almost daily by the leader of the Republican Party and his minions, even as the majority of Americans oppose their policies. To stop this surge of fear and hate, we must make sure that our system does not devolve further. Only then can we continue the fight for an expanded democracy. Inviting persuadable voters to this conversation on one of the largest media stages of the year is a huge opportunity to do just that.

The selection process will focus not only on the artistic merits of the work but also on the clarity of the message and its potential to influence moderately conservative voters to support candidates and issues that expand reproductive rights. To this end, incorporating text is encouraged but not required.

We invite artists of all ages and talents to submit their artwork between March 18 and May 13, 2024. This is an opportunity to have your work placed on billboard ad space in Milwaukee, WI. Three artists will be chosen from the open call, they will join Michele Pred, and Lena Wolff on billboards throughout Milwaukee, WI.

Open call for art ends May 13, 2024. There is a $10 donation per image submission to participate, each donation is tax deductible and goes to producing the public art. Selected artists will be announced after May 27, 2024. Public art will be installed June 24, 2024 in New York City.
