Archaeologist estimate that humans domesticated dogs approximately 30,000 to 40,000 years ago, but it is likely that our interest in and fascination with animals began long before then. Most of us have tried to touch a beautiful bird or hold that furry squirrel. Surveys report that about 62% of American households include a pet. Why do we seek out the companionship of animals? Why do we need to be close to them? What needs do they fulfill? The jury seeks works that explore the wide world of pets, the role that our faithful companions play in our lives, and the impact that they have on our health and well-being. All media welcome; small to large-scale installations; new media encouraged; indoor and outdoor works accepted; cash awards to be presented.

Deadline to apply: August 10, 2016
