“Manifest’s mission is to stand for quality in the visual arts, as well as the importance of creative research, meaningful and accessible art-based experiences for the public, deep learning outside academia, and the rigorous documentation of exceptional art for posterity.”
MANIFEST, Drawing Center, Cincinnati, Ohio
International drawing annual 14 exhibition-in-print.
INDA 14. One of my drawings has been selected and has been included in the International drawing annual 2020.
“Manifest is much more than a gallery. Our organization is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit founded on Woodburn Avenue in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2004 by professors and students from area universities seeking to make a positive community impact. Manifest continues to be operated by professors, students, and working artists to this day. Our programming is divided into four balanced quadrants: Gallery (exhibitions), Press (publications), Artist Residency (support), and Drawing Center (education).”
For the INDA 14 Manifest received 1187 submissions from 353 artists from 43 states, Washington D.C., and 25 countries. The publication includes 110 works by 66 artists from 26 states, Washington D.C., and 7 countries including Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, and Scotland. A written work by Billy Renkl is also included.
Only 5 European nations are represented and I am proud to represent Italy in this event with this ballpoint pen drawing.
