This week’s call is one that really appeals to me. I can’t help but think of the song, “Sucker for Pain” by Suicide Squad.
We all experience pain, at one time or another, in our lives. Some of us experience it more frequently than others and there are many different levels of severity to consider. This call asks us to draw on pain we have experienced, either physical, or emotional to convey a visual depiction of it. It asks us to share something intensely personal with the world in hopes of making a lasting impression on the medical students who will view the exhibit. If you would like to be an instrument of change in this area, read on for details.
The Hoyt Gallery at the USC Keck School of Medicine presents “PAIN2”, a mail in art/postcard show featuring images depicting physical and mental pain. PAIN2 will run from September 1 – Oct 27, 2017
Our hope is that PAIN2 will give medical students a visual representation of what their future patients will be going though. We want them to see their patients as people, not just symptoms. We need you to draw your personal pains.
Deadline for submissions is August 30th, 2017.
PAIN2 is open to all visual artists worldwide.
Artists retain rights to submitted works, but grant Hoyt Gallery the rights to digital reproduction of their submission(s) to include on the Hoyt Gallery webpage, and PAINARTSHOW Facebook page. www.facebook.com/PainArtShow/

My apologies for the quick turnaround on this one, I only just learned of it.
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
