Institute on Disability Seeks Artists for its 2011 Calendar

July 7, 2010

My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together. De s m o n d T u t u

Are you an artist looking for an opportunity to get your work noticed? Do you know someone who is an artist and might be interested in such an opportunity? Every year since 2000, the Institute on Disability (IOD) at UNH has produced a calendar featuring 13 original works of art. These highly anticipated calendars are distributed each year to thousands of people around the world who are connected to the IOD's mission of strengthening communities and ensuring full access, equal opportunities, and participation for all persons. The IOD is currently inviting artists to submit artwork to be considered for its 2011 calendar.

The theme for the 2011 calendar is reflective of the quote:

“Inclusion is a right, not a special privilege for a select few.” - Federal Court, Oberti vs Board of Education

If you would like to submit, here are some simple guidelines to follow:

  • All artwork must be two-dimensional (i.e. drawings, paintings). Unfortunately, we are unable to accept photography and sculpture.

  • Artwork for submission may be created for the purpose of this calendar or may be selected from an existing portfolio of work.

  • Artwork should reflect the artist's interpretation of the quote above.

  • Artists are encouraged to submit artwork with vibrant colors (see links to past calendars below).

  • Artists are welcome to submit a maximum of three (3) works of art for consideration.

  • Submissions must include the artist's name, phone number, email address, and title(s) of artwork.

  • If chosen, the original work submitted will be requested and will need to be sent to the IOD. All originals will be returned to the artists.
