Call for Artists!

The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculp­ture Gar­dens is now accept­ing sub­mis­sions for the 2015 – 2016 Exhi­bi­tion “Sight Unseen: Touch­able Sculp­ture”

Sight Unseen is a sculp­ture exhibit based around the con­cept of touch­able, hands-on, 3-Dimensional art.  Selected works must be made to safely with­stand vis­i­tor touch­ing and encour­age inter­ac­tion. Local phys­i­cally chal­lenged com­mu­ni­ties and orga­ni­za­tions will be invited to par­tic­i­pate, includ­ing the blind and vision-impaired. Blind­folds will be avail­able for vis­i­tors to use to expe­ri­ence your art with height­ened sen­sory aware­ness, so please keep that in mind as you cre­ate your con­cept. Selec­tion will be based on the artists’ aes­thet­ics as well as their abil­ity to embrace the theme. Make the audi­ence want to touch your art!  Instal­la­tion pieces and col­lab­o­ra­tive works welcome.
