GALLERY SHOW - Wildlife: Trading and Conservation
Call for Proposals to exhibit in gallery 55 at the rhode island school of design, summer 2016
Creature Conserve, Rhode Island School of Design (Division of Liberal Arts and Department of Illustration), and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) invite RISD faculty, alumni, students and other members of the RISD Community to submit proposals for a gallery show, “Wildlife: Trading and Conservation.”
This is a unique opportunity for artists to learn about the ways wildlife trade impacts a particular animal species, via initial self-directed research and in collaboration with field scientists and IFAW staff. Through this project, artists may build lasting connections with members of the scientific community and become a part of the effort to bring these fields together to communicate and solve problems associated with the global wildlife trade. This show will demonstrate that when combined, art and science deepen our understanding of the problems facing animals today and inspire us to create fresh solutions.
Please see the complete call for proposals below. If you are interested and would like to discuss your ideas first, please feel free to email Dr. Lucy Spelman at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a phone conversation. Submissions should be emailed as a pdf to email@example.com by April 1, 2016.
