Opportunities for Artists

Call for Art

Silverwood Park invites artists who are at least 18-years-old to submit work to be considered for a juried exhibition Ever-Present: Birds in Our Daily Lives.

Description of Exhibition: Birds, both wild and domestic, are found across the planet and live in close relationship to  humans. They influence society in concrete ways from food and fashion to hobbies and sports. Some species capture our hearts and imaginations while others are considered nuisances or pests. When we stop and notice birds, we may recognize their value and the importance of our relationship with them. We invite artists to submit work that responds to the presence or absence of birds in our daily lives. This exhibition coincides with Three Rivers Park District's Big Year of Birds.

Work can be 2-D or 3-D, representational or abstract. Framed works should not measure more than 40 inches in width. 3-D work must fit on a 15” x 15” pedestal or be freestanding or suspended.

Deadline: August 15, 2022
