Remnants: One Read Art Exhibit Call for Submissions

Moth and bulbRemnants
A One Read Art Exhibit
Orr Street Studios (106 Orr Street, Columbia)

“No more diving into pools of chlorinated water lit green from below. No more ball games played out under floodlights. No more porch lights with moths fluttering on summer nights. No more trains running under the surface of cities on the dazzling power of the electric third rail. No more cities.” ~ Emily St. John Mandel, “Station Eleven”

 

If the world were changed by sudden catastrophe – no electricity, medicine, Internet, transportation – what would you miss most? Inspired by this year’s One Read selection, we invite mid-Missouri artists to contribute works that explore the objects or relationships in our connected, complex and electrified world we’d yearn for most if they were lost to us.

Cash prizes will be awarded for three winners, courtesy of Columbia’s Office of Cultural Affairs. The third place winner will receive $50, the second place winner $75 and the first place winner $125. The first place winner will also receive a one-year membership to the Columbia Art League. Art will be displayed August 31 through September 26 at Orr Street Studios with a reception, awards and program on Tuesday, September 15, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
