Call for Artists: Beyond #MeToo

Monmouth University’s Pollak Gallery
January 22 – April 30

The #MeToo movement has brought to the surface long ignored injustices perpetrated mostly against women for generations that are demanding to be remedied. For this juried exhibition we are looking to feature works that eloquently depict how to honor women and others who have been maligned, how to implement change within our culture, how to alter perceptions and ultimately erase this malady forever.
