Fountain Street Church offers several spaces for displaying two- and three-dimensional works as well as time-based performances and installations. Outdoor spaces are also available. (Refer to website fountainstreet.org for more information). In partnership with the American Civil Liberties Union, Fountain Street’s theme this year is "Art to Change the World: Inspiring Social Justice”. Art can play an important role as a change agent for social and economic justice. We are looking for works of art that demand basic human needs be met, diversity respected, and freedom of expression and action fostered. Submissions will be judged by their ability to communicate human rights issues and on the quality of artistic expression. “Art to Change the World“ offers an opportunity for artists to be both creative and compelling. Artists should be prepared to explain how their submission reflects this theme.

Fountain Street Church is a beautiful, historical, downtown landmark. In partnership with the American Civil Liberties Union we are hosting an ArtPrize exhibit titled, "Art to Change the World: Inspiring Social Justice”. The exhibit honors the role art plays as a change agent for social and economic justice. Our exhibit draws over 20,000 visitors and we have been recognized by ArtPrize jurors and the media as one of the most compelling exhibits in the city. Architectural and historical aspects of the building will also be available for viewing.
