Calling all LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered) Artists and Designers!

Despite the victories of LGBT Americans, many continue to stereotype this unique subculture. Now is the time to debunk these stereotypes and show Metro Detroit the talents of the LGBT community, through art and design. Welcome to the 3rd Annual ‘Beyond the Bar’, Detroit’s LGBT art and design showcase.

We are asking Metro Detroit’s LGBT designers, illustrators and artists to share with us their favorite pieces. Whether it be a website, logo,
photograph, painting or sculpture – take this opportunity to show the local area your contribution to the art and design fields.

Chosen pieces will be showcased at an opening reception on June 6th, at Start Gallery, kicking off Motor City Pride: 2013. A selection from the show will also remain on display for the duration of Motor City Pride.

How to Submit:
Email a PDF/JPEG (lastName_FirstName.PDF/JPEG) and/or link of your chosen design/art piece to BTB2013@detroit.AIGA.org, by May 10th, 2013. You must include your full name, email address and phone number within the email submission. After each piece is reviewed, chosen designers will be contacted with installation steps, no later than May 15th, 2013.
