Cosmos: imagining the universe
February 13 – July 26, 2015
Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center, Dowell (Solomons), Maryland
This exhibit invites artists to envision the mysteries of the universe, both scientific and fantastical, theoretical and fictional, real and imagined. How do artists render the work of scientists, authors, explorers, astronomers, cartoonists, Trekkies, LARPers, astrologers, and philosophers? This exhibit embraces not only what science has revealed about space, but what humans have imagined about the cosmos. From the results of scientific inquiry to the creative minds of science fiction authors and fans, this exhibit celebrates how space has stimulated human understanding and creativity. From the big bang theory to worm holes and warp speed, artists are invited to submit works that bring to life what we know of space and what we imagine. The goal is to assemble a vibrant and diverse selection of works that speak to our fascination with the cosmos.
All media welcome; small to large-scale installations; new media encouraged; cash awards. Deadline to apply: December 5, 2014.
Juror: to be announced.
