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.
Exhibition Runs Tuesday, December 7, 2015 – Sunday, April 17, 2016
DEADLINE EXTENDED. The deadline for entry will be 5:00 PM EST on Friday, October 30, 2015
For exhibit or gallery questions, please contact: Rachel Frisby, Curator at (407) 647‑6294. Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
