Open Call for Entry

Beyond the Selfie!

March 1-April 7, 2019

Entry Deadline: February 1, 2019

The Art Center Highland Park (TAC) is searching for work that reaches beyond the traditional concept of a self-portrait. With today’s obsession with “Selfies,” how are artists exploring representations of the self? We are looking for work that pushes the boundaries of expression and interpretations of the theme.
