Go inside: Inside Voices

Part One: Developing the Theme and Call for Art

Welcome to a new series about our Call and Response partnership with the Fitchburg Art Museum!  

For this ninth Call and Response, “Inside Voices” prompts artists to consider a wide range of interiors, including domestic environments, psychological subjectivity, bodies, architecture, and sculptural containment. These spaces reveal symbolic weight, mental and emotional states, fantasy worlds, gender roles, and personal memories.

Ten works from FAM’s permanent collection have been loaned to ArtsWorcester, and serve as the inspiration for this year’s theme. This year, artists must respond not only to the theme, but directly to one (or more) of ten artworks on loan from the Museum. At the time of registration artists will be required to name the FAM artwork(s) that inspired their piece. Explore the loan, read registration requirements for the call for art, and register your work online here.

Artwork Registration Deadline: Friday, February 26, 2021

See all ten works on loan from FAM online, or visit our galleries to see these works in person. Plan your visit.

The Fitchburg Art Museum’s curatorial staff will select ten works from Inside Voices to be exhibited at FAM with the selected works from the Museum’s collection.

Inside Voices: A Members’ Exhibition in partnership with the Fitchburg Art Museum will be on view March 18 – May 2, 2021.

We thank our friends and partners at the Fitchburg Art Museum for sharing their collection so generously with our artists.
