Mobile Arts Council will observe the fiftieth anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech with an exhibition in August 2013, open to community participation.
The I Have a Dream exhibition is Mobile Arts Council's contribution to the Centre for the Living Arts Futures Project.
The Futures Project encourages members of the public to envision the future they want for our area; King's speech describes his vision of an America where racial inequalities no longer exist. In the same spirit, MAC invites everyone who would like to participate to submit a representation of his or her dream for Mobile's future, focusing on any aspect(s) of the community.
By "everyone," they mean people of all ages living in Mobile or Baldwin County, amateur and professional artists alike. Each artist may submit one original piece created in the past year, which has not been exhibited publicly.
All two-dimensional media are welcome, along with wall-mounted three-dimensional works. However, dimensions may not exceed 11 X 17 inches. Film, video and audio (music or spoken word) are also eligible and must be submitted via email as mp3 or mp4 files; pieces may not exceed 3 minutes.
For the exhibition, pieces must be dropped off at MAC (318 Dauphin St) on Saturday, July 27 between 9 and noon or on Monday, July 29 between 9 and 5. All visual arts pieces must be ready to hang (i.e. matted, framed or mounted with the necessary hardware). Our intention is to include all submissions in the show, but we reserve the right to exclude any piece for any reason. .
They will be displayed at MAC from Monday, August 5 through Friday, August 30. MAC hours are Monday - Friday, 9 AM - 5 PM and during ArtWalk (Friday, August, 6 - 9 PM). Artists must pick up their works on Friday, August 30 (3 - 5 PM) or Saturday, August 31 (9 AM - noon).
