Call for Art

The Anne Frank Center USA and the Jewish Art Salon will co-host three solo exhibits at the Center in 2014. 


Small-scale 2-dimensional works that are in line with the center's mission "to educate about the dangers of intolerance, anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination, and to inspire the next generation to build a world based on equal rights and mutual respect."

We are not looking for art that graphically depicts the Holocaust. The work does not have to be Jewish-themed either. For instance: upcoming exhibits include a photo series of Cuban Jews in present-day Havana, a photo series of the Roma and Sinti in 1940-45; and calligraphy paintings inspired by the French children killed in WWII.

Anne Frank Center, USA, 
44 Park Place, New York, NY 10007

Space specs:

The small gallery has 4 movable columns, with 16 display areas for works no wider than 18". The columns are 20" wide and approx. 7.5 ft tall. Two regular walls allow for larger works. 2-Dimensional art only.
See photographs below.

The exhibits will be displayed for 3 months.
The first slot is January 2014. The other slots are later in the year.

The Center provides the opening reception, printing and mailing of postcards, and an email blast to their large list. 

A stipend will be provided on a case by case basis. For example one artist opted for his work being matted and framed, another was paid shipping costs from Europe, and another had her photos printed on aluminum.
