All media welcome.  Submit on CAFE through our website listed below.  Roundtable discussion with the juror will be held on Zoom after the show is up.

America claims to be the land of the free, a country where dreams are nurtured and allowed to come true.  It professes to welcome the immigrant and anyone seeking a better life.

But the experience of America to the individual living here is as broad as the country is big.  Current events bring to light how far the myth is from reality for many within our borders.  Yet some fortunate people do experience the abundance and opportunities available here.

We invite artists to share their uniquely American Experiences. Freedom of expression is still one of the sacred promises of the Founding Fathers.  This show intends to encourage and honor that freedom through art.

Cost to submit: $40,  $30 for OHCA members.
