"A Call to Arms:The Newtown Project" will open on Inauguration Day and run through Feb. 18th, 2013 (President's Day). The Gallery, which shows "the art of social and political change," is located 8 blocks from the White House in Washington, DC.

DEADLINE: Jan10, 2013 to TheNewtownProject@CharlesKrauseReporting.com.
SELECTION PROCESS: A jury of experts organized by Washington's Millennium Arts Salon will review each submission and notify those artists whose work is selected for the exhibit by Jan. 14, 2013; the selected work must be in Washington by Jan. 17, 2013. All work submitted to The Newtown Project will be displayed on its soon-to-be-created website. Approximately 30 works will be selected for the Washington exhibit.
The Newtown Project is a completely non-profit and non-commercial response to the Newtown massacre by CHARLES KRAUSE/REPORTING FINE ART in partnership with the Millennium Arts Salon, Washington, DC. Artists who submit their work for the Exhibit agree that it may also be licensed free of charge for public education campaigns supporting passage of meaningful and effective gun control legislation as soon as possible after the new Congress reconvenes in January. Any money from the sale of the art work will be used to offset the costs of, and to maintain, The Newtown Project website; or donated to 501-C-3 organizations engaged in public efforts to secure the passage of effective gun control laws.
