2018 Competition’s Theme: Natural Wonders
Our 2018 theme, “Natural Wonders,” welcomes artwork that is inspired by nature, music, science, natural products, resources and environments. “Natural Wonders” can be interpreted quite widely, bringing together a broad range of elements and ideas. Art submissions should be more than a simple landscape. They should communicate a real message and purpose, as well as provoke an emotion. As you begin evaluating the subject matter for your art submissions, please consider the following questions related to our 2018 theme, “Natural Wonders.”
HOW TO SUBMIT ARTWORK:
Each artwork submission must be uploaded online, using the following link: https://form.jotform.com/70814952764161. You will use this link for EACH individual piece of artwork submitted. Please keep the images free of identifying information (artist name, etc.) as this information will require cropping of the image. ENTRIES ARE ONLY ACCEPTED THROUGH THIS LINK. The link is also available at our website: www.friendsofthemansion.org
Entries MUST be UPLOADED no later than 6 p.m., February 21, 2018
For more information, contact Sharon Morris at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or 501-324-9805
Are you looking for an opportunity to teach and also do personal work? There is a wonderful opportunity for all you arts/design folks in Helena for the coming year. The deadline has been extended on this community design residency, but is quick approaching!
Thrive is seeking 4 people to be part of the 2017-2018 class of its new Community Design Residency program.
As a Community Designer in residence, you'll be working with high school students enrolled in Central High School's EAST (environmental & spatial tech) program, mentoring them through the strategic design process and providing one-on-one expertise as they work on self-guided projects intended to address and/or solve local community challenges.
Additionally, you'll be part of creating a rich arts and design culture in an underserved (but rebounding) school district and community, exposing the next generation of creatives and problem-solvers to possibilities that they can’t yet imagine.
Apply before Monday, June 26 at http://www.thrivecenter.org/residency.
