Call-for-Art 2018

NYAM is partnering with Get Loud Now, a political postcard platform, as a featured content provider. The purpose of Get Loud Now is to make postcard activism an easy and streamlined process that individuals and groups can use to contact city, state, and national politicians in order to have a direct impact on the political process for issues like gun violence legislation. As a content provider, NYAM artists will design artwork to be used in local and national gun violence prevention campaigns.


Youth/Emerging Artists between the ages of 12-and-25 years old who are interested in the opportunity to participate in NYAM’s partnership with Get Loud Now are asked to complete and submit their artwork by following the directions in the art exercise and having a teacher or mentor submit the recommendation form. 

NYAM will accept artwork throughout the summer until Saturday, August 18.
