Thematic Challenge: All You Need is Love & Art
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of “The Summer of Love” and Irving Arts Center’s “Summer of ’17,” participating artists are invited to create artwork which explores the theme of “All You Need is Love & Art.” Characterized by the spirit of revolution and social change, the 1960s were a turbulent and exciting time. Through the works of those artists who choose to find inspiration in this theme, we hope to capture a bit of the culture, music and art of this most groovy decade. Special prizes will be awarded to member artists who choose to compete in this category (note – this is completely optional).
