Amnesty International’s iconic candle-and-barbed-wire logo is recognized around the world. And this year Amnesty and its candle turn 60. Sadly, we can’t gather to mark the occasion, except online. So that’s where this special 60th anniversary art exhibition will be located.
We invite all artists to submit a high resolution photo of an original artwork or photo that in some way presents or represents a candle that we can bring together with 59 others in an online exhibition we’re calling 60 Candles for 60 Years.
Artwork may include but is not limited to any media on any surface, sculpture using any material, prints of any type, photography, metal, glass, digital imaging, mixed media, and created at any time. There is no entry fee. We ask that artists respect any local laws or by-laws in the creation of their artwork and ensure their safety and well-being and those of others is respected.
