Calling all artists!

The Fairbanks Breastfeeding Coalition is seeking artists that create work that includes breastfeeding as a concept for an open-entry art exhibition. The Fairbanks Regional Public Health Center will host a First Friday reception April 6, 2018 to display all submissions. Fairbanks artist Sara Tabbert will select 1st and 2nd place winners. Members of the Alaska Breastfeeding Coalition will select one entry to be printed as a poster for breastfeeding promotion throughout Alaska.

Instructions:

  • Art submissions should promote breastfeeding as a normal, healthy, and natural way of feeding a baby.
  • Breastfeeding does not need to be the primary subject matter, but needs to be included conceptually.
  • All artistic styles and media allowed. Artwork must be ready for display.
  • Work must reflect the artist’s unique creative effort.
