Vividness Exhibition Seeks Submissions


The definition of cultural appropriation is defined as the adoption or taking of specific elements of one culture by another culture. But not all cultural appropriation is a bad thing. Let credit be given, and homage paid to the artistry with the origins acknowledged. Appreciation for the different cultures are needed, seek to understand, and learn about another culture and broaden your perspective. But appropriation is not a substitute for diversity but expands upon the vividness of life and culture itself. Vividness aims to show quality work that brings both positive representation and pays tribute to people of color yet challenges the negative appropriation of a culture.

Vividness is open for paintings, printmaking, photography, drawings, prints, and mixed media. No videos or sculpture. All entries must be an original piece.


The Indiana University Kokomo Downtown Gallery is located in downtown Kokomo. The gallery displays artwork by students, faculty, alumni and local, regional and national artists throughout the year.


They CANNOT accept payment through CAFÉ. There will be a $25 per artist entry fee that will be invoiced once the entry is received. (This must be paid regardless of acceptance into the exhibit).
