The Ontario Museum of History & Art and Guest Curator, Jerry Weems, present Diversity and Inclusion: The Influence of African American Art in Southern California. This open call exhibit displays the diversity of the artistic styles and visions of contemporary African American Art. Seen through the stylings of regional artists, Diversity and Inclusion reveals how artists are influenced by the raw and expressive beauty of the African American experience.

 

Diversity and Inclusion encourages and promotes inclusion of all visual artists regardless of race. However, successful art entries must incorporate subject matter/iconography that reflects the African American experience. Artists are allowed to submit up to two pieces for consideration. The jury panel will select artwork that best represents the theme of the exhibit.

Artists of any age are eligible and must live in the Southern California region (San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Los Angeles County, Orange County and San Diego County).
