Visionary Art Collective© is a Brooklyn-based art & education platform. Our mission is to connect contemporary art with education through virtual exhibitions, weekly interviews, educational resources, workshops, and more.

Stories I Tell Myself is a virtual exhibition centered around visual storytelling. How does the work we create reflect deeper, underlying narratives? For centuries, art has been used as a means of visual storytelling, and through these stories we can better understand ourselves and the world around us. In this exhibition, we are seeking work that draws upon memory and storytelling to visually communicate the personal experiences of each artist.

The essential questions guiding this exhibit are, how does memory impact the visual narratives we create in our own work, and what do these narratives reveal about the lives we live? We are seeking diverse responses to this question, and encourage artists working across all visual disciplines to submit their work.
