Art Meets Earth Day In Tampa: MOSI's EarthVisions Call for Artists

In celebration of Earth Day's 40th's anniversary, Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry will feature the first national juried art exhibition, EarthVisions.

The call for artists to be featured in MOSI's Arc Gallery is currently underway. The deadline for submission is April 19.

The concept of EarthVisions is said to include: "A vivid mental image produced by the imagination; foresight, future goals or aspirations; a person or thing of extraordinary beauty." Presented artworks should explore any of the aforementioned concepts in relation to Earth Day. The exhibit will feature all forms of art including painting, sculpture, photography, installation and video art.

Curators for the exhibit are Zarth Bertsch, director of IMAX Dome Theatre, and Ofra Friedman, award-winning sculptor.

The entry fee for artists is $25 for 2 images and $5 for each additional image. Student artists' fees are $20 for 2 images and $5 for each additional image. Selected artists will have their work featured in the EarthVisions exhibit, which will run from April 30 to May 28.
