CALL TO ARTISTS: URBAN WILDLIFE LEARNING TO CO-EXIST

CALL TO ARTISTS: URBAN WILDLIFE LEARNING TO CO-EXIST

Rhode Island School of Design ISB Gallery (map)

We invite artists to collaborate with scientists to create art for an exhibit that explores the lives of wild animals in urban areas and the human responses to this shared territory. Our goal is to encourage the viewing public to take an active role in healthy co-existence with urban animals.

This is a juried exhibit with a $10 entry fee open to all artists and all forms of visual art. Jurors will be looking for work that reflects the artist's effort to explore, through a combination of independent research and collaboration with scientific experts, the basic biology of their selected animal or animals, its urban ecology, and the ways it interacts with humans. 

SUBMISSIONS DUE BY JUNE 1, 2018. ARTWORK DUE IN GALLERY JULY 10-15, 2018.
