Conservatives and liberals; critics and supporters; artist of all kinds are invited to send creative work to The White House as messages of hope and messages of concern in response to or in support of the politics, policies, and rhetoric of President Trump and his administration.
This project aims to create a unique collection of political art indicative of this moment, forever to be held within the National Archives’ Presidential Libraries, and a collection of the responses from the White House. Artists should submit documentation of their artwork and later documentation of a letter from the White House. In addition to the online archive, physical gallery presentations are being sought.
Artists are especially encouraged to participate during the first 100 days of the new administration.
For more information on how to participate, please visit http://InCareOfTheWhiteHouse.org

One artist will be awarded a three-month residency in a 400 sq ft. semi-private studio adjacent to Ortega y Gasset Projects gallery at The Old American Can Factory, from July 2 – September, 2017. The residency will culminate in a solo exhibition in September of 2017 in the main gallery space at OyG, with the studio space still being available to the artist for the duration of the show to work in, bring in guests, artists and curators to discuss the work in the show, and peek into other works in-progress in the adjacent studio space.
The exhibition will be curated by OyG Co-Directors and will include an opening reception and one programmed event (an artist talk or a closing event), and will be promoted on OyG social media outlets.
