Call-For-Entries: Boys Will Be Boys 

PDF version

Submission Deadline: September 4th, 2018 by 11:59pm

Whitdel Arts is currently accepting submissions and proposals for Boys Will Be Boys.  This exhibition will explore different archetypes of masculinity, today’s societal pressures on men, and ramifications of institutionalized expectations.  Masculinity has a long and varied history, but with the current climate, the constructs of manhood have come to the forefront of conversation. With this exhibition, we aim to continue the conversation on the limitations and outcomes of the concept of masculinity.  This exhibition will be held at Whitdel Arts in the Fall of 2018.
