Exhibition on view April 5 - April 27 and April 5 - May 15, 2019

Jubilee Arts Gallery and MICA PLACE

Deadline for Submission: March 1, 2019

Our Words Will Still Be Heard is the second exhibition planned in conjunction with Rising Up an education program for middle school students organized by the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric. Curated by Sarah McCann, the exhibition asks professional artists to create work about the power voice that will be exhibited alongside art and performances of lyrical narratives created by Baltimore middle school students expressing personal stories and their perspectives on life.

At a time when people are being silenced, the arts provide an opportunity to speak out. It is only through the rising up of all voices that true equilibrium and harmony can be achieved.

Artists are invited to create and submit pieces of artwork that express why speaking up and being heard is important, as well as sharing artists' own stories related to being silenced and rising up against that silencing. Several artists selected to be included in the exhibition will work with students to create visual work to be included in the exhibition alongside the professional artists' pieces. 

The Rising Up program will take place at New Song Academy, Booker T. Washington, Henderson Hopkins and Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women all in Baltimore, MD. The exhibition will have two installations at galleries in close proximity to the program locations. The first will be at Jubilee Arts and the second will be at MICA PLACE.
