CALL TO ARTISTS

 

The term "environmental art" often encompasses "ecological" concerns but is not specific to them. It celebrates mainly the connection of an artist with nature using natural materials. - Linda Weintraub, "Untangling Eco from Enviro".

Changing Landscapes is a multimedia exhibition that promotes environmental awareness, sustainable practices and invites us to join the movement of change.

ArtServe is now accepting submissions and proposals to create and present thematic works/projects/performances that:

  • Explore threats to the Florida Everglades, Lake Okeechobee and our surrounding seas, while highlighting and bringing awareness to the human impact in South Florida’s fragile ecosystem.
  • Showcase experimental forms of art and art-making including sustainable practices and works/projects built with upcycled materials.
  • Bring together and celebrate climate solutions and ecological sustainability initiatives through community engagement and participation.
  •  Show how humanity must be anchored and connected to the natural environment socially, philosophically, economically and spiritually.
