Call for Entries: In the Flesh and Beyond at BCC

IN THE FLESH AND BEYOND: Artists Contemplate Their Own Vision of Jesus

An art show sponsored by Berkeley Community Church UCC

Entry Deadline: March 18, 2017


Most of us, whether religious or not, have a fixed mental image ofJesus Christ drawn from historic depictions. These mental images are often based on cultural stereotypes, political circumstance, and theological interpretation. However, a race- or gender-specific depiction of Jesus is limiting. In life, Jesus’ aim was to banish racial, social, and class distinctions. Jesus is, symbolically, “all in all”—everyman, everyperson.

What is your visual interpretation of Jesus? Are your images of Jesus literal, metaphorical, or something else entirely? Berkeley Community Church (United Church of Christ) invites artists to use their chosen media to address their perspective.

  • Show Date: Friday, April 7, 2017
  • Entry Deadline: March 18, 2017
  • Entrance Fee: $25 per piece
  • Total Awards: $250
  • Head Juror: Cecily Cullen—Managing Director and Curator of Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Center for Visual Art.
  • Secular submissions are welcome and encouraged. Chosen art will be displayed for one year. Artists may sell the art while it is on display, but purchaser must allow art to be displayed for the full year before actual possession.
