Shelter: Crafting a Safe Home
SCC is currently seeking artists whose work reflects an interest in topics related to home, shelter, homelessness, and displacement. Whether on a global, national, or local level, a safe home is a basic human right. However, the United Nations reports that a record 65.4 million people were displaced world wide in 2015, a figure that has increased by 50 percent over the past five years. What role can art play in addressing these issues? The exhibition will highlight a variety of techniques and forms that include innovative art expressions rooted in traditional craft materials (clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood, and found objects). No entry fee. Deadline: December 1, 2016.
