Request for Art Submissions: ESA SS EcoArt Festival in Baltimore
It’s that time of year again! We are now accepting art submissions for this year’s ESA SS EcoArt Festival! The EcoArt festival is an annual display of ecologically themed art (or art by ecologically minded individuals) that takes place at the ESA conference.
As with previous years, we will be combining the art festival with music at the ESA Special Session called “An Evening of Art and Music”, which will take place Tuesday, August 11, 2015 from 8:00 -10:00pm in room 308, BCC of the Baltimore Convention Center. Because transporting art to the ESA meeting may be difficult for most conference attendees, pictures of the art will be projected as musicians perform at an open-mic.
If you have artwork of any sort (such as paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, etc.) with an ecological focus please send in electronic photos of your work for the show. The pictures will be projected at the ESA Special Session and displayed before the event on the ESA SS Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ecological-Society-of-America-Student-Section/761632403864881). The ESA Student Section will also be awarding prizes for the images with the most FB likes.
Send all images to Jessica Shade at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your name, the name of the artwork, the media used, and whether you will be able to attend the event (not being able to attend does not preclude your art from being shown, but you must be present to win prizes). Submissions are due on July 1st, 2015. For information about last year’s show you can see our website at http://www.esastudents.org/ecoart-festival. We will be accepting submissions until the end of June.
For those of you who don’t submit anything, but are appreciators of art, we welcome you to look at the submissions on our Facebook page and to come to the Special Session:
