The Koehnline Museum of Art at Oakton Community College is seeking women artists to submit work for the juried exhibition The Personal is Political: The Transformative Power of Women's Art that will run Oct. 4--26. Deadline for entries is Thursday, July 26. There is no entry fee. Ever since Kate Millet coined the phrase "the personal is political" in her landmark 1970 work Sexual Politics, the words have continued to resonate in contemporary feminism. The college requests artists of all media to submit a work that engages with and responds to the multiple meanings in Millet's words. The exhibition is sponsored by the Women's and Gender Studies at Oakton, in cooperation with the museum. Artists may submit only one original work on a compact disc. A list of rules is at www.oakton.edu/newsevents/events/WGS_art_entry.pdf. Submit entries to Nathan Harpaz, Koehnline Museum of Art, Oakton Community College, 1600 East Golf Road, Des Plaines, IL 60016. For information, contact Harpaz at (847) 635-2633 or firstname.lastname@example.org
