Hurricane Sandy royally screwed the East Coast back in October and lots of people still haven't recovered from the damage she caused. The Brooklyn Arts Council is seeing the silver lining through artistic expression with their new project: For and About: Art and Reactions to Superstorm Sandy.
The curatorial description from the BAC says,
"For and About is a curatorial project focused on how artists have experienced and interpreted natural disasters, and seeks proposals for written works that extend beyond documentation. This call is open to literary artists based in Brooklyn, who wish to publish work for those affected by Hurricane Sandy, and/or about the storm’s impact on Brooklyn on the web and in a limited edition zine. It is an opportunity to focus on the communities hit hardest by the storm, creating a space to reflect on the collective and individual experiences at the one-year anniversary."
The exhibit will run from September 27 to February 14 and the deadline for submissions is June 5, so channel that post-Sandy anger into something meaningful.
