#NotAStereotype Call for Artists at Lyndon House Arts Center

Monday, February 1, 2021

The Lyndon House Arts Foundation (LHAF) and the Lyndon House Arts Center (LHAC) are pleased to announce La Ruchala A. Murphy as the Guest Curator for a project to expand our commitment to increase the visibility and contribution of Black /African American identifying artists.  #NotAStereotype is an exhibition designed to give voice and space to artists with a focus on the black experience. The call for art will feature all mediums of art created by artists that identify as black/ African American to highlight positive images of black culture and contribute to the legacy of black artistry underrepresented in fine and contemporary art spaces.

Online digital submissions will be received from February 1 – March 15, 2021.  Open to artists living and working in the southern states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina or Tennessee.

#NotAStereotype exhibition will be on view at the Lyndon House Arts Center from May 1 – July 24, 2021.

Murphy, has served as the Executive Director of the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation since June 2019 having previously worked in the arts sector in South Carolina for 15 years. La Ruchala has earned a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts and Master’s in Arts Administration from Winthrop University.
