Movement in Art (MIA) is a novel project from RISE Chattanooga that will amplify the voices of Chattanooga-area artists creating socially-conscious work.
The project will be open to all artists. In order to reflect the grassroots nature of social movements, selected featured works will be displayed on Chattanooga storefronts, billboards, and our social media platforms. The theme will rotate quarterly under the banner of “activist art” and “change-oriented art.”
