Call for Submissions: Exploring Urban Identities in De-industrialized Cities

Time of Exhibition: January-February 2013  

Submission Deadline: December 03, 2012  

Medium: Photography

New Bedford Art Museum, New Bedford, MA

As a once thriving industrial center which has struggled to regain its position in the 21st century economy, New Bedford, Massachusetts is exemplary of what the independent think tank MassINC has termed a “Gateway City.” Offering inexpensive commercial real estate, an eager workforce and an existing infrastructure, the gateway cities of Massachusetts maintain a unique potential for growth. The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Department of Art History is inviting artists to submit photographic works in response to the theme: the changing urban identities of post-industrial mid-size American cities. Send submissions and to find out more, contact and by December 10, 2012: Attn: Professors P. Karimi and T. Stubblefield College of Visual and Performing Arts, Group VI: Room 313 University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, 285 Old Westport Road, Dartmouth, MA 02747
