THEMUSEUM Looks to Amplify Diverse Voices with Front Window Display

Posted on: July 21, 2020 by THEMUSEUM

Kitchener, ON – THEMUSEUM is looking to use its front window, facing King Street, as a platform for BIPOC artists in the community. The front window of THEMUSEUM has housed works by artists such as Brent Marshall with Julien van Mossel-Forrester, Trisha Abe, and Jennifer Gough. THEMUSEUM is thrilled to be able to offer this platform to amplify diverse voices from within the community. 

“We are pleased to be able to use our platform to amplify the voices that need to be heard to drive genuine, meaningful change,” said David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM

“As part of our pledge to Diversity & Inclusion, we believe that it is important to increase our work with BIPOC artists and continue to be a stage for the community,” said Laurel McKellar, Senior Director, Curation, Exhibitions & Program Development. 

Submission Guidelines: 

If you are a BIPOC artist interested in this paid opportunity, please contact Laurel McKellar at Laurel.McKellar@THEMUSEUM.ca, please include examples of your work and a description of existing or new work, including subject matter/themes, which you would like to propose for THEMUSEUM’s front windows.  

Submissions will be accepted until the end of the day, August 4, 2020.
