Events

Make art. Document it. Send it to The White House.

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.

Everyone at Guttenberg Arts understands the financial difficulty facing artists of all levels and seeks to support their creative endeavors at our studio with the space and time artist residency (STAR) program.

STAR provides artists with stipends to cover materials, travel and access to a professionally equipped workspace for the visual arts including printmaking and ceramics.  Artists work is supported with a group show at the end of the residency and three studio visits with arts professionals. Each artist will present a public lecture on their work or conduct a free public workshop towards the close of their three month residency.

Increasing an artist’s community is the first step toward a sustainable career in the arts.  Guttenberg Arts promotes each STAR fellow in print and on the web, through exhibitions and art fairs.

STAR artists are selected by a blind jury of arts professionals on the merits of their work.
