CALLING ALL ARTISTS! KAC is excited to announce the first-ever Digital Exhibition: Speak Up! 

Speak Up is a digital exhibition that welcomes any form of artwork that addresses equality and equity in our current political climate. In creating a digital space for artists to show their work that connects to equality and equity, Kirkland Arts Center as an organization and a community hopes to learn, listen, and support artists that have been silenced by an oppressive system. We hope to spark important dialogues within this vast, intersectional topic and foster a sense of empathy within the arts and beyond.


All mediums and artists welcome!

Submit up to 3 pieces.

Your Instagram account must be public – and be certain you’ve tagged us, so we don’t miss your submission! 

Deadline to submit: 8/16, 11:59 pm

How to submit your work:

1) Create an Instagram post with an image of your finished artwork! 

2) In the caption, include your title, date of completion, and medium 

3) Tell us about how the piece relates to equality or equity. 

4) Tag @KirklandArtsCenter and use hashtag #SpeakUpWithKAC
