In Pursuit Of…

This fall, Amplifier and The Getty are partnering to launch an open call for art for students ages 13-19 around the theme of “In Pursuit of”, leading up to the 2020 elections. Our lesson teaches you how to make visual artworks documenting what YOU are in pursuit of in your life, right now. You’ll learn how to combine images and text to convey a message, ask a question, or demand a change. All you need is your cell phone camera and something to write with. Tell us,  are you in pursuit of justice? Are you in pursuit of equal rights, or equal pay? Are you in pursuit of immigration reform? Are you in pursuit of peace, or maybe just peace of mind? Are you in pursuit of love? Are you in pursuit of joy? The world is full of stories. What is yours? Submit your artwork to win a chance to have it included in a public projection series in November!
