A call for submissions for Our Stories, Our Future: A Night of Student Art and Performance at The Rubin Museum of Art

Recent VCS graduate Jordan Boyce just sent us the following message about an open call for submissions for an upcoming event at The Rubin Museum of Art:

I’m helping to facilitate an evening of time-based art at the Rubin Museum on Friday, May 25th and we need more submissions. Here’s a link to the event/submission page.

The event page at  the link above includes the following description of the event:




FRIDAY, 5.25.18 
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

How does art allow us to transcend the boundaries of past, present, and future? We want to know how you engage with time, history, and future narratives through your art! The Rubin Museum invites students and emerging artists for an evening of performance, storytelling, and time travel.

Register online and send us your song, story, or poem to be a part of this exciting collective performance on May 25.

Submissions are open to all, with preference given to college and graduate students, as well as recent graduates. Registration will be open through May 13 and is required to be considered for a spot. Submissions will be viewed on a rolling basis. You will be notified about your participation by May 18.
