Letters to 2020 – A Call for Artful Submissions

Dear 2020…

With unparalleled events unfolding daily, many have called the year 2020 unprecedented.  Beginning with a global pandemic emerging in January 2020, leading to an historic global economic collapse. The death of George Floyd set in motion a long-overdue racial reckoning with street activism across the globe, sparking Black Lives Matters conversations in the public realm and around our kitchen tables. A divisive Presidential election, rising violence from home grown terrorist groupsand the continued rampant spread of COVID 19; this year will leave no one untouched and it’s not over yet.
