Call for Artists: Umbrellas of Unity

May 6 deadline for collaborative installation!

I love getting people together to create a statement with art…The umbrella being a symbol of unity and protection… I got this idea: wouldn’t it be cool… if I made an umbrella celebrating unity… and a lot of other artists did as well?!…That would be such a cool thing to walk into and be part of and be under!! – Mary Therese, Painter

Umbrellas of Unity is a collaborative installation that will fill the ceiling of the Kaul Gallery at the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji this August. Painter Mary Therese thought of the idea as a means of salve and healing in times of societal unrest. Artists interested in contributing to this unique exhibit are invited to submit their design concepts to the Watermark by May 6th. Selected artists will receive necessary paints, markers, and the umbrella that will ultimately become part of this thematic show!
