Changemakers Juried Art Show

The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation is launching its next-generation campaign with an art exhibit at the pop-up shop Chalk, on the Downtown Mall, which will help to shed light on the challenges our community faces. We want the next-generation Charlottesville community to know where changemaking can happen, and we need local artists’ help to spread the word. We are inviting submissions of artistic representations of specific issues in the community. Help the Foundation share some hard facts and illuminate difficult realities, through art.

Issue Examples
Climate change, food sustainability, mental health, economic disparity, animal welfare, maternal health, smart growth

Residents of Charlottesville and surrounding counties are encouraged to apply.

Eligible Media
Drawing, painting, mixed media, photography, sculpture, and film/video.

Each applicant may submit up to three images of one piece of finished creative work, and a short statement that must include dimensions, a brief description of their work and how it illustrates an issue the community faces. All submissions need to be ready to install/hang. Please include any equipment, technical, or hanging instructions with the application. Only one submission per artist will be considered. Please submit via email to Aidyn Mills,

Each artist chosen to exhibit will receive $75.
