Celebrate EveryBODY Juried Exhibition

Celebrate EveryBODY Juried Exhibition

PROMOTING POSITIVE BODY IMAGE—Event on February, 27th –March 3rd 2012

Submission deadline: 9th February 2012 



What is Celebrate Every BODY week?

This event is sponsored by IU Campus Recreational Sports, IU Health Center and the Coalition for Overcoming Problem Eating/Exercise (C.O.P.E.), and coincides with National Eating Disorder Awareness Week.   40-60% of male and female college students struggle with some degree of disordered eating/exercise, and the purpose of this event is to promote positive body image.  As millions of women and men suffer from eating disorders and the internalization of the “thin ideal” espoused by media, the message of Celebrate Every Body is meant to counteract this problematic, narrowly defined version of beauty.


We want submission of art work from IU and Ivy Tech students, faculty, and staff as well as the community at large.  Submissions may be any two dimensional or three dimensional work whose size can be supported by a pedestal or easel.  Installations, performance pieces, videos, or live experiments will not be accepted.  We expect all artists to be confident that their work will be complete and presentable by February 25th, 2012.  All two dimensional work should be framed.

 C.O.P.E. will provide a setting for the event at the SRSC, open to all IU students and faculty for one week, (Feb 25th– March 3rd).  As this is a grassroots project which recognizes the power of art to evoke a positive paradigm shift in and for the community, collaboration from the artists will be greatly appreciated.

Artists with accepted submissions will be expected to bring their piece(s) to the SRSC on Saturday, Feb 25th at 12pm, aid in the installation, and pick up their piece(s) March 3rd at 12pm. Artists with accepted submissions will be notified by February 18th.  Artists may submit up to three pieces. A second juried selection of pieces from the SRSC will be hung at the IMUG Gallery March 3rd-March 10th.
