Call for Art: Time in the Garden Community Art Exhibit

April 24

Seeking artwork to display at the University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens located at 1800 N Dixboro Rd in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Artworks in all media are welcome including but not limited to drawing, painting, textiles, sculpture and more. We prefer that 2D pieces be a minimum size of approximately 8″x10″. The display area has a hook and wire clip rail artwork wall hanging set up. Our West Lobby can accommodate a variety of 3D artwork.

Contact forda@umich.edu for questions regarding the display of artwork, including inquiries about video or performance works. Artists may submit up to 3 pieces. Not all artworks submitted will be accepted to the exhibition.

Exhibit Description: For most people, 100 years is a major milestone. We gather two or three generations together to celebrate our centenarians. We often reflect on 100 years ago as a distant past, although with more and more elders to testify, is that an accurate perception? We often ask ourselves, how much has changed or not changed in the last 100 years? We urge our artists to explore the questions of our perceptions of time (past, present and future) and change, especially in relation to the botanical world wherein 100 years can be either a wink or an eternity.
