The Long Red Line is Elgin’s expression of One Billion Rising, a global movement of women and their allies rising to end rape, violence, interpersonal domination and oppression against women. This year’s theme is Rise. Empower. Unite.
To further raise awareness and honor survivors and community support, The Long Red Line is offering an art exhibit from Apr. 1-30, 2020, in the Renner Library Hallway Gallery, located in Building C at Elgin Community College, 1700 Spartan Drive in Elgin.
ECC students, staff, and community members are invited to submit their artwork for the exhibit. Artwork must embody the mission and theme of The Long Red Line. The application deadline is Sunday, Feb. 23, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. For more information on submission guidelines and application procedure, visit tinyurl.com/LRLart2020.
Artist will be informed of application decisions by Wednesday, Mar. 4, via email. If accepted, artwork drop-off dates will be Tuesday and Thursday, Mar. 10 and 12.
