Call for Art

The Niagara Arts & Cultural Center (NACC) is excited to share a new
Open Call exhibition in continued partnership with Los Artistas del Barrio Buffalo (LADBB) for
our Beyond Borders Annual Exhibit, curated by Michele Agosto and Aileen Gonzalez-Marti.
Beyond Borders celebrates and showcases the artwork of Latino/a/x artists from across
Western New York.

October 1-November 25, 2023

Sunday, October 1, 2023, 2:00-4:00 PM.
Please join us for a reception honoring the artists and artwork within this exhibit.

With this exhibition LADBB and the NACC offer a platform to connect to culture apart from
judgment. This Call for Work is open to all forms of expression. By doing so, we aim to foster
tolerance for differences and bring people together. If you are interested in participating, ask
yourself… How does my art or my experiences connect with Hispanic Culture? Applicants need
not be Hispanic or Latinx, but we ask that artwork celebrates and relates to these cultures to be
considered for inclusion.

30% of artwork sales go to the NACC in support of long-term projects. Artworks submitted for
consideration with this exhibit are required to be for sale.

3-D and 2-D work of all genres, mediums, and artistic interpretations will be accepted for the
exhibit. Artwork must be delivered in “ready-to-hang” condition, or it will not be exhibited.

This exhibit is sponsored by The New York State Council on the Arts, in partnership with the
Niagara Arts & Cultural Center, The Niagara Falls National Heritage Area, the Community
Foundation of Western New York, KeyBank, and the John R. Oishei Foundation.
