Eligibility: National
City: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Fee: $30.00
Event Dates: 3/2/2017 – 4/15/2017
Entry Deadline: 1/27/17
For Baton Rouge, 2016 has proven to be a very difficult year. We have had shootings which have emphasized the racial tensions that mark out times. We have had record breaking floods that left people homeless or in tenuous situations, without their possessions or certainty of the future of their homes. On top of that, we are living through an election season that is causing tension in our town, state and country.

Artists through the ages have used their media to offer both veiled and overt social commentary. We are giving visual artists an opportunity to show how they are responding to the events of 2016. This is an opportunity to provide a forum for thought-provoking and insightful work.

Like the Futurists of the early 20th century, we live in a world immersed in technology, urban trappings, speed, information, connectivity and change. Viewing it through a southern lens, tinted by tradition, can result in modern dissonance. For many, the narrative of the American South, will be informed and confined by its history, but how is its future to be portrayed? This exhibition seeks,  in the broadest sense possible, to showcase contemporary artists’ depictions of the schism and reconciliation of what might be called the New Southern Futurism.

Event Dates: 3/2/2017 – 4/15/2017

Entry Deadline: 1/27/17

 For Baton Rouge, 2016 has proven to be a very difficult year. We have had shootings which have emphasized the racial tensions that mark out times. We have had record breaking floods that left people homeless or in tenuous situations, without their possessions or certainty of the future of their homes. On top of that, we are living through an election season that is causing tension in our town, state and country.

Artists through the ages have used their media to offer both veiled and overt social commentary. We are giving visual artists an opportunity to show how they are responding to the events of 2016. This is an opportunity to provide a forum for thought-provoking and insightful work.

Calling all Artists: Environment Texas Art Contest

methaneut

Environment Texas is hosting an art contest for our campaign: “Methane: UT’s dirty little secret.” The University of Texas is involved in the one of the largest oil and gas operations in America. The drilling operations pollute huge amounts of methane, which is harming our planet. UT doesn’t require companies who lease its land to use available technology to cut methane pollution. We’re calling on UT to require the companies that drill on UT owned land to cut methane emissions in half in the next five years.

To help get the word out about this important campaign we’re calling on artists! The art submissions must represent the purpose of the campaign which is to have UT reduce their dangerous methane emissions from fracking operations happening on UT owned lands. We will be accepting any medium of art, from photographs to sculptures, it’s up to you! All art will be displayed after the competition has ended. This is a unique opportunity to have your artwork displayed, and it’s for an important cause!

Deadline Nov. 30 https://www.facebook.com/events/1366240240082849/
