Produce® Bar & Gallery Announces Open Call for Submissions for LGBTQIA+ Art Exhibition

Produce® Bar & Gallery, in collaboration with Joey Gonzalez, is excited to announce an open call for submissions for a special art exhibition showcasing the work of LGBTQIA+ artists. The exhibition, titled “Day Dreaming Ourselves Awake,” will explore the investigative potential of dreams in uncovering queerness as it manifests through the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious self.

The show aims to promote the understanding that dreaming is an imaginative tool, providing marginalized communities with the ability to produce alternatives to current material conditions. By encouraging us to reenvision the future, the exhibition challenges whether the present deserves to persist.

The exhibition will be on display at Produce® Bar & Gallery, located at 419 Peoples St, Corpus Christi, TX 78401, from June 2nd to the 30th, 2023.
