Submissions are sought for “Equal Protection of the Laws: America’s Fourteenth Amendment,” an art exhibition at the Michael Klahr Center on campus at the University of Maine at Augusta. The exhibit, set for Sept. 22 through Dec. 16, is hosted by The Harlow Gallery in partnership with The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine.

The goal is to create an exhibit by Maine-based artists that contemplates the importance of the 14th Amendment, the most litigated and referenced of all the amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Themes can relate to any or all areas of American society covered by the amendment: including due process, liberty, gender and sexuality, race, legal protections, equality in the workplace, housing, education, law enforcement, rights of the incarcerated, tolerance, and local, state, and federal representation.

Email submissions will be reviewed by a curatorial committee comprised of staff of the Harlow Gallery, HHRC, and the Maine Arts Commission. Submission deadline is Aug. 1. There is no submission fee for this exhibition thanks to support from the Maine Arts Commission and the Maine Humanities Council.
