A Foot Forward: Art Knows No Boundaries

Deadline extended to June 21! Join us as we take A Foot Forward: Art Knows No Boundaries into a future where inclusivity thrives and art becomes a catalyst for positive change. In this exhibition, our aim is to highlight the diverse talents of artists from Coronado, San Diego County and Tijuana, while also nurturing meaningful connections and fostering understanding across demographic boundaries.

By providing a platform for artists of all backgrounds to collaborate and share their stories, A Foot Forward aims to amplify diverse voices that may not always receive prominence in traditional art spaces. Through the universal language of art, we invite viewers to engage with narratives that challenge stereotypes, promote inclusivity, foster empathy and solidarity.

As part of the programming for World Design Capital San Diego Tijuana 2024, A Foot Forward: Art Knows No Boundaries will feature diverse artwork from 100 local and international artists, highlighting the intersection of design, innovation, and cultural exchange. The group show will be on view August 9th through December 31st at the C3 Gallery in the Coronado Community Center.

We invite artists to apply for participation in the exhibition by submitting three or four images of their artwork, offering insight into their body of work and artistic style. Upon selection, artists will be tasked with producing their interpretation of the show's theme, A Foot Forward, on a 12 x 12 inch canvas. Artwork can be created using any medium, including painting, drawing, photography, digital art, or mixed media.

Selected artists will interpret this theme of A Foot Forward with an opportunity to explore new ideas, push boundaries, and make a statement about progress and advancement. Please note that each artwork should not be framed and will be hung using pins. There will be a limited number of spaces for heavier pieces which conform to 12 x 12 inch requirement.

Eligibility: Open to all 18+ artists residing in San Diego County and the Tijuana region.
