Shane McDermott: Heaven & Earth
More than two-thirds of Americans live where they can no longer see the Milky Way galaxy because of light pollution. We have grown so isolated from night that in much of our culture it has become alien and fearful. NightVisions V seeks to re-open our positive connections to the natural night and to bridge the divide separating artistic from scientific perception, promoting the idea that science and art are two intertwined aspects of human experience.
Exhibiting at the Coconino Center for the Arts for the fifth time, this international juried exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age or older. This call is open to work in any media; 2-dimensional, 3-dimensional, literature, photography, video, installation, etc.
Prizes will be awarded for best of show ($1000), Second Place ($500), & Third Place ($250).
