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.

The Alaska Fiber Arts Residency seeks an Artist exploring the relationships between wearable art and fashion. The residency aims to support designers working in fashion, costume design, sculpture and/or associated fields, in particular those whose practice is experimental and hard to define.

Through the course of this four week residency, the Artist will produce at least three “wearable art” pieces for exhibition. The Artist will conduct intensive collaborations with local participants, through a series of workshops or projects exploring the relationships between art and fashion. Topics may include: material possibilities of textile and fabric, issues of copy and appropriation, ideas of clothing as an extension of the body, notions of clothing as symbol & visual language and clothing as wearable, sculptural art.
