This June, the Eccles Art Center is proud to celebrate Pride Month. We support the coming together of artists and art appreciation, through the offering of this competition of shared creative expression. When the world is disheartening, a show of support and acceptance is all that someone needs to feel understood. We ask artists to create using the six colors and/or themes of the Pride flag. 

Drive up intake will be held on May 27th and 28th in front of the Eccles Art Center

Works must be presented in a tasteful manner, and be able to be viewed by art patrons of all ages. Works that may be suggestive or pornographic will not be accepted.
