2021 Artist Open Call

The winners of the inaugural FGSS Artist Open Call are

  • Angelina Suh (on Marsha P. Johnson)
  • Gileen Navarro (on Kimberlé W. Crenshaw)
  • Jamie Seney (on C. Riley Snorton)

The 2020-2021 FGSS Program Representatives initiated the Artist Open Call in order to celebrate the power of art in social movements and to uplift artists in our campus communities. Applicants submitted work samples and a short list of portrait subjects. From an impressive pool of work, the Program Reps (Brionna Bolaños, Kiara T. Dunbar, Mikah Sánchez, and Hana/Connor Yankowitz) chose the winners according to a rubric that took quality of work, portrait subjects, and aesthetic confluence into account. We are thrilled with this year's results and are so proud to feature this work on our website. Thank you to all who submitted & please look out for next year's call in Fall 2021! 

Here is what the artists say about themselves:

 

  • "Hi, I'm Angelina! I'm passionate about everything from marine biology to film posters to video games, and I bring all these subjects to life with my illustrations. My lifelong goal is to bring happiness to others by creating inherently accessible artwork."
  • Gileen Navarro, a senior at Stanford majoring in Product Design, was born in Manila, Philippines and grew up in Long Beach, CA. She is a visual designer passionate about using art and design to create meaningful social impact.
  • Jamie (they/them) is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily in drawing, video, and tattoo art.
