The population of Prince George’s County ebbs and flows like the rivers that flow along and through its boundaries. Due to educational aspirations, military service, and/or familial obligations, citizens of Prince George’s County often find themselves filled with nostalgic memories of being at home or excited to be returning to a place “filled with love and affection.” Artists featured in Home, Again focus on innovation (new materials and techniques or new twists on traditional styles), process, and transformation. We are asking artists to submit works that embody the constant spirit of innovation and reinvention.

Deadline to Apply: August 4, 2016

Artist Notification: August 15-17
