Contemporary Craft is currently seeking artists whose work reflects an interest in topics related to food justice, public policy, advocacy, farming and gardening, race and class awareness, access, and nutrition education. What role can art play in addressing these issues? Food Justice: Growing a Healthier Community through Art, and related interpretive programming, will convey personal stories and experiences to demonstrate the local and world-wide impact food security has on individuals and society, and how the arts can guide thoughtful conversation on the topic.
The exhibition will highlight a variety of techniques and forms including, but not limited to, innovative art expressions rooted in traditional craft media such as clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood, and found objects; and will explore unexpected relationships between craft and painting, sculpture, conceptual, and installation art.
Open to exceptionally talented artists who are in the early, mid or late stages of their career and reside in the United States or abroad.
