Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) is honored to announce this new juried exhibition inspired by Anna Murray Douglass, Rosetta Douglass Sprague and Annie Douglass.

RoCo says the call is to artists of all media and creative practices to submit individual or collaborative works. This exhibition builds upon several other initiatives dedicated to the Douglass Women and it will constitute a collective effort to expand their legacy and inspire the community.

As I Recall Her…is presented in partnership with collaborating organizations 540WMain, Inc. and Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives, and will open in March, International Women’s Month.

Visit asirecallher.artcall.org to submit art.

The art center invites submissions of all media related to, or inspired by, the Douglass Women. Welcoming artworks that help expand public awareness of these figures within the Douglass family and those that creatively interpret their lives.

They also encourage projects that highlight the stories and voices of other Black women who make significant, but overlooked, contributions to the world. They are especially interested in creative and challenging efforts to shift our collective memory, inspire new narratives, center Black women, offer alternative monuments, and invite a deeper understanding of our shared history.
