We have re-opened this application if you would like to change your artwork or submit if you haven’t already. This exhibition was scheduled last spring. Due to Covid-19, we needed to reschedule. If you wish to change your artwork, you will need to resubmit. If you are happy keeping it the same, you do not need to do anything.
**Please note that PCA is in the process of determining if this exhibition will be open to the public or if it will be hung in the space and remain an online experience using photography and video. We are hopeful that there will be a safe, socially distanced closing reception on the de-install date: Dec. 5th.
