Submit Your Work



Artists Marta Carvajal, Amanda Koss, Debbie LaPratt and Cheryl Zemke are calling upon local artists of all disciplines to create a 12” x 12” self portrait in your own style. Your unique piece will be put together as part of a panel installation. See example from the Detroit Fine Arts Breakfast Club panel below. 

Self-portraits are to be inspired by 365 days of living within the COVID-19 pandemic and all of those virtual calls! This is a community project which signifies unity and the coming together of the artist communities throughout the Detroit-Metro areas. This call for art is open to artists of all mediums.
