Juror: Fran Forman. Fran Forman says, “We are living in a time fraught with danger – to our democracy and to the global economy. We know that what happens in one part of the world effects other parts (like the old adage that when a butterfly flaps its wings in Africa, the wind is felt across the ocean). Climate change, war, changes in demographics, population movement, and the pandemic can all contribute to a rise of populism and autocracy. As artists, how do we express our anxieties and concerns? How do we represent the interconnection of peoples, of species, of all living things? Is it our responsibility to sound the alarm?”

10% of artist entry fees goes to the charity of the curator. Fran Forman has chosen Animal Haven. They find homes for abandoned cats and dogs. They also provide behavior intervention when needed to improve chances of adoption. Animal Haven has a four-star rating with Charity Navigator.
