Call for Entries for All in the Family: An All-Inclusive Digital Exhibit presented by Cotuit Center for the Arts, Cape Cod, MA

Most dictionaries define family as that including parents and children and blood relations. But we know that family is so much more. For many folks, family can include friends, co-workers, classmates, LGBTQIA+ housemates, kindred spirits of all sizes, shapes, and colors. The possibilities are endless. Even Buddha has a definition: “A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another.” Whatever YOUR definition of family, we want to see it artistically represented. Please join us in honoring and celebrating family in each and every way possible.

This exhibit will be digital only. Exhibit will run digitally in the Gallery at Cotuit Center for the Arts, 4404 Falmouth Road, Cotuit, MA 02635, on our website, and on social media.
