Add The Words Launches Art Competition

Posted By on Fri, Jan 13, 2012 at 9:28 AM

The Add the Words, Idaho campaign has invited the public to compete in a new art competition.

Add the Words, Idaho is a statewide all-volunteer initiative that aims to add the words “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the Idaho Human Rights Act. Currently, Idahoans can be fired from their jobs for being gay or transgender. The goal of this campaign is to demonstrate public support for the inclusion of gay and transgender folks in the state’s fair employment, housing and education laws.

Local artists are invited to submit a piece of visual art on a 3-inch by 3-inch post-it note, or any other piece that is under 1 foot by 1 foot in any medium. The competition is divided into two categories: one for adult artists and another for children 16 and younger. The size and content of the art is supposed to reflect the spirit of the campaign.

Entries may be delivered to the Hoff Building at 802 W. Bannock St., Ste. 402, between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 23-24. They can also be mailed to P.O. Box 2661, Boise, Idaho 83701 by next Tuesday, the due date.
