In the clamor of competing thought, art transcends language in a way that it evokes emotions and feelings that escape us in written work. But not all art speaks to all of us. The voices of the few and the marginalized are often left unheard (and unseen). Therefore, this list is dedicated to opportunities that provide platforms for these voices.
