Once again the Hall of Flags at the State Capitol Building will be adorned with artwork from agencies and individuals across the state. Lest we Forget seeks to draw attention to individuals with developmental disabilities whose voices are heard through their artwork and the community agencies that support them. Agencies are invited to submit up to three pieces of art on behalf of individuals that they support that highlight the contribution those artists make to the greater art community. Individuals are also invited to submit pieces directly. The following art media will be considered: Painting/drawing, Photography, Small sculpture, Fiber/textile work/Jewelry.

The initial submission requires four items, due no later than March 22nd:

  1. To defray the costs associated with the exhibit, there will be a $25.00 entry fee for the first submission and $5 for each additional submission. Checks should be made payable to Group Main Stream, and include “Lest We Forget” in the memo section of the check.
