The Stars and Stripes Imagined

 The City of Santa Clarita Arts and Events Office is seeking art entries for an exhibit that will feature a variety of art addressing the theme described below.  This exhibit will be featured in the First Floor Gallery at Santa Clarita City Hall.


Project Description

The Arts and Events Office is seeking art for an upcoming exhibit titled “Stars and Stripes Imagined.”  This symbol of American freedom has been the source of inspiration to many artists throughout the last century – often using its iconic image to form political commentary about the issues facing the nation.  Artists have used it to both honor their country and tear it down.   We are looking for art that honors the symbol, as well as artworks that re-interpret the symbol.  The exhibit will be on display from April 3, 2017 to July 20, 2017.



Art must be submitted for consideration by February 15, 2017.
