Call to Artists for Hispanic Heritage Month

NYC Parks’ Latino Society invites you to submit your work for the exhibition Las Flores de mi País in the Arsenal Gallery in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.

About the Exhibition: Las Flores de mi País

NYC Parks spans over 30,000 acres and is home to a biodiversity as rich and varied as the Latin American diaspora. In its first gallery exhibition, NYC Parks’ Latino Society aims to represent the diverse communities that make up this great city. The Society asks artists to propose work that explores their interpretation of Latinx culture using imagery of native flora from countries or territories of their choice. Artists can, but are not limited to, use botanicals as inspiration, symbols, a medium to create designs, a historical reference, and in textile design that reflect a culture or tradition.

Submission Information

Submission Deadline: Friday, July 1, 2022
Exhibition Dates: September 15 – November 10, 2022

All submissions should include:

  • A brief description of proposed artwork or artist’s statement
  • Representative renderings or images of proposed artwork
  • Up to 10 images of past work
  • Checklist, numbered to correspond to images with title, date, medium, dimensions
