To celebrate April Fair Housing Month, the ONE Arts Center and the Fair Housing Project of CVOEO invite you to submit art that symbolizes home and inclusive communities. Artists are invited to consider the important ways the Fair Housing Act continues to shape our communities as we move away from housing segregation, or to reflect on their own lived experiences of exclusion from housing based on race, disability, gender, marital or family status, age or receipt of public assistance.
Fair Housing Month celebrates the federal Fair Housing Act which was signed into law on April 11,1968 after a long and difficult political and social struggle. The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, and disability. Vermont has additional protections for age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, receipt of public assistance, and abuse, sexual assault, and stalking. This community art show will be part of a month of educational activities and workshops around Vermont in honor of the event.
Works will be displayed both at the ONE Arts Center and at Burlington City Hall for the duration of the month.
Who should submit: You!
You do not need to be an “Artist” to submit your work, as long as you feel like the work you are creating or will create connects to ideas of home in your diverse community.
Type of work: Anything! 2D, 3D, painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, wire, etc.
1. Artist’s statement (how the work connects to the theme)

Send electronic submissions only to firstname.lastname@example.org
Nitty gritty: If you want to sell your work during the show, we take 30% on sales. We ask that no matter when the piece is sold it stays in the exhibition through all of April. Exhibition will last through the month of April. Please email any questions to email@example.com. Work must be dropped off at (ONE ARts Center in Burlington) and ready to hang by March 25th.
