Seeking contemporary art in all media that explores or references SPACE, which is found all around us, around our planet, and throughout art, nature, literature, science, society, and language as a concept and a construct with many different connotations. SPACE has become a particular focus in our society with the 2020 pandemic, in which we have become acutely aware of how we function in the world, in our homes, and with each other in terms of space. Work that considers the pandemic experiences of our society as a whole or as an individual is welcome. Work will be juried by guest juror Hannah Israel, Professor of Art and the Gallery Director at Columbus State University.
