In a recent blog post, I shared that I’m opening up the 2011 “Technicolor Muslimah” series.
I am seeking volunteers who self-identify as American Muslim women, with or without hijab (and anywhere in between), who can help make this project more diverse. Please read the original “Call for Subjects” for more of what I mean.
To Submit, please send:
1. A selfie (a picture of you!):
– high quality (It’s difficult to paint from blurry or low-res pictures)
– head and shoulders only (or can be cropped)
– BIG PERSONALITY! I’m looking for images that are more communicative than just “looking at the camera and smiling,” whether through use of props or through expression.
2. A brief description of how you feel you could make this series more diverse.
Send to firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook.com/artbysaba by MAY 1st!! I will choose a few that will become paintings in the first couple of weeks of May.
