UNIQUE 2012 is here! We were thrilled to mark the release of the magazine with an opening exhibit at the Everson Museum of Art. The UNIQUE 2012 art and literary pieces will be exhibited at several locations throughout the region through the spring of 2013.
Do you know someone with a disability who loves to draw, paint, or write? We have a fantastic opportunity!
We are looking for artists and writers who are at least 8 years old, live in Central New York, and have a disability of some sort to submit their artistic and literary pieces for consideration to be published in UNIQUE magazine.
We have seen submissions of short stories, poetry, personal essays, paintings, sketches, computer-generated art, collages, fiber art, sculpture and more.
Please forward this to any friends, family, and consumers who you think may enjoy this opportunity. They will have a chance to be published in a magazine over a decade old, and have their work on display at the Everson Museum of Art and other community locations.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Liz Martin, UNIQUE Managing Editor, at 671-2909 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNIQUE is an Art and Literary Magazine that shares the artistic visions and voices of individuals with disabilities. UNIQUE represents the power of art to express, educate, and inspire. Art comes in many forms and the creative work published in UNIQUE includes poems, paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, computer-based art, and mixed-media works.
The magazine is published annually in the fall by ARISE and distributed throughout Central New York to display the creative work of artists and writers with disabilities living in Central New York.
Goals of UNIQUE
UNIQUE has four main goals:
To publish deserving artwork and literature in recognition of its intrinsic artistic and literary value;
To share the artistic visions and voices of individuals who have disabilities with the public, increasing awareness of the capabilities of persons with disabilities;
To initiate conversation around art and literature that inspires, educates, and enlightens; and
To share the experiences of persons who live with disabilities, and their joy with accomplishing freedom, success, and independence.
