The Harlow Gallery, in partnership with The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine, seeks submissions to “Equal Protection of the Laws: America’s Fourteenth Amendment,” an art exhibition at the Michael Klahr Center on campus at the University of Maine at Augusta Sept. 22 through Dec. 16. Deadline is Monday, Aug. 1.

The goal is to create an exhibit by Maine-based artists that contemplates the importance of the 14th Amendment, the most litigated and referenced of all the amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Themes can relate to any or all areas of American society covered by the amendment including due process, liberty, gender and sexuality, race, legal protections, equality in the workplace, housing, education, law enforcement, rights of the incarcerated, tolerance and local, state and federal representation.

Email submissions will be reviewed by a curatorial committee comprised of staff of the Harlow Gallery, HHRC and the Maine Arts Commission. There is no submission fee for this exhibition, thanks to support from the Maine Arts Commission and the Maine Humanities Council. For more information, visit
