Honoring Hunger Awareness Month and the second anniversary of Zero Hunger | Zero Waste, Kroger announces the 1 in 8 Art Gallery, September 13 in downtown Cincinnati!
Inviting professional and amateur artists from the Cincinnati area to participate, this themed art exhibit will showcase various media connecting to the general awareness of food insecurity. Artists are encouraged to submit artwork within the theme of "One in Eight". This theme stems from the fact that more than 40% of the food produced in the U.S. is uneaten, yet 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger. Highlighting this fact, the gallery experience seeks to drive home the discrepancies between assumptions and reality.
Artist submissions are now open! Share information about an existing piece or a concept for a new creation below. Submissions will be reviewed on or before August 5, 2019 at which time artists will be notified if they will be featured at the exhibit. Make sure to submit artwork you’d like considered by August 2, 2019.
Note: If submitting a new piece of art, the artwork must be completed no later than September 9, 2019.
Featured artwork will be auctioned at the event on September 13, 2019 with 25% of the selling price donated to Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen & Social Center and 75% given to the artist.
