Out of the Darkness

Eligibility:

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum invites artists in all media (except video) to submit work(s) for an 11-week group exhibition during the 2021 season.
 
The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented changes in our world and, much like other events such as The Great Recession of 2008, the impact of the current pandemic will continue to be felt for years to come.  Acknowledging that art can convey ideas which words cannot always express, this exhibition aims to shed light on how artists are responding to the crisis and its aftermath.  The theme, out of the darkness can be interpreted as both a woeful as well as a hopeful message – can be build back better, how will we use our newly acquired knowledge to prepare for future crises, will we unite at this critical junction or continue to tear into our fellow man because of political and ideological differences?  Any of these questions and more can be proposed and answered by work submitted to this show.    

Deadline: 
01/29/2021

$30 for first two entries; $10 for each additional entry
