Enter the Anisfield-Wolf Reflection Exhibition

The Cleveland Humanities Collaborative (CHC) is seeking entries for its second annual Anisfield-Wolf Reflection Exhibition. Essays, poetry, short stories, art, photography, music and media all will be accepted. The virtual exhibition is open to students, staff and faculty from colleges and universities. The deadline to submit entries is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 28.

This initiative follows three CHC-sponsored summer seminars in which higher education community members across northeastern Ohio gathered to discuss each year’s award winners. The CHC is generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and is grateful to the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, Cuyahoga Community College, LAND Studio and the INTER|URBAN, and Case Western Reserve University for their support of this year’s reflection exhibition.

The Anisfield-Wolf Reflection Exhibition draws on the mission, history and authors of the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards to inspire creative dialogue about our history and complex social issues.

Participants are invited to submit their reflections, consisting of either written or non-written work, for consideration to be included in the virtual exhibition to be held in April 2021. Everyone who submits work will receive a certificate of participation.
