Michiana Art Competition to exhibit same-sex marriage artwork

Ara Lucia, a bisexual, has had two photographs selected for inclusion in the Michiana Annual Art Competition 2012. The pieces include “Lil’ Red Revised” and “Almost,” the latter inspired by the fight against California’s Prop 8 anti-marriage ballot initiative. The Box Factory in St. Joseph will host the multi-artist show with a reception June 15, 5:30-7:30 p.m. The awards ceremony begins at 6:00. The exhibit runs through July 28th.
The MAAC offers over $10,000 in total prizes.
Ara Lucia is a director and a visual artist who makes photo-fables: photographs of invented worlds that tell a story. She utilizes her background in performance, choreography, visual books and psychology to explore the private worlds of myth-making, most recently using photography. Her recent investigations into her own bisexual identity, and its relevance to the culture at large, have taken her into more public and sometimes politically-charged areas.
