Call for Artwork
The WMJ is currently seeking artwork to illustrate the impact of race and racism on the health of people in Wisconsin. Artists are invited to submit works in the following media: photography, digital design, or well-rendered photographs of painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, or textile/fiber art. Selected artwork will be incorporated into a special theme issue online and, in some cases, print. One work will be selected for the issue cover.

- Submission is not a guarantee of publication.
- Limit 2 submissions per person.
