We are very excited for the Call & Response Poster Project submissions we have received thus far and for those on their way. We’ve received posters from all age groups and are so excited about our upcoming exhibit. We’ve been moved and inspired by our community’s response to this call that we have decided to extend the deadline to October 10, 2020.

We thank all those who have already submitted a poster design. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. Also, please know you are welcomed to submit more designs, so keep them coming!

All submissions will be accepted and will receive credit as part of the Call & Response exhibition.
