Call for Original Artworks!
The Lopez Library and the Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District are excited to announce a call for original artworks to be included in a visionary community art exhibition at the Library, beginning the weekend of the Studio Tour (September 4th) and remaining on display until October 15th, 2020. The theme of the exhibit is "Creative Visions." Artists working in any media are invited to submit works made exclusively from materials that are sourced from the Lopez Dump"either the Recycle Plaza and/or the Take It Or Leave It (TIOLI). This show aims to inspire local creativity and imagination to produce innovative, artistic, playful, futuristic, maybe even improbable solutions to issues the planet faces regarding waste and recycling. All displayed works will be celebrated, and additionally one work will be selected as a "winner" through a community voting process. The winning artist will receive a $200 prize.
Artists are welcome to work independently on their submissions, but they are encouraged to participate in an arts-based research project, guided by Nikyta Palmisani (LSWDD) and Malia Sanford (Lopez Library). Any artists interested in the research-based approach are invited to join an initial tour and informational group that will provide an overview of the current state of recycling, reuse, and waste. From there, artists will find the areas of inquiry they are interested in exploring and begin making work. The first meeting will be held on Thursday, February 20th from 5 pm - 7 pm at the meeting room above Blossom Grocery. From there the group will decide the schedule based on availability for the coming months, with the goal of meeting once to twice monthly leading up to the show, which will open on Friday, September 4th, 2020. If you are interested in participating, please email Youth artists are welcome and encouraged to join, and youth under 14 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
To submit your works for consideration in the exhibition this fall, please email a digital image of your artwork (in JPEG format) to Malia Sanford, The deadline to submit is Friday, August 14th.
