Artists as Visionaries – Call for Entries
A 2015 Summer Exhibit
Streams, Rivers, Bay to Sea – Santa Cruz and the Essential Element: Water
Seeking a means to raise up artists and their role in society, Michaelangelo Gallery presents a new annual exhibit: Artists as Visionaries. As familiar paradigms break down locally and globally, artists can be poised to take on an important role as creative problem-solvers, philosophers, and inventors.
Often thought by non-artists to exist only for decoration and entertainment, artists’ careful observations can yield ideas that change our collective lives for the better.
Each year, Artists as Visionaries will ask artists of every media to research and respond to an issue that affects our environment and culture. Creative responses will be shared during a two-month exhibit at Michaelangelo Gallery each June and July. Complimentary programs with music, artist workshops and writer readings related to the issue will take place at the gallery throughout the exhibit.
