Elements, 2021 POP Exhibition and Auction

Application Period: December 1, 2020, to January 15, 2021

The Professional Outreach Program (POP) is pleased to announce its 2021 exhibition and auction theme, Elements. As a theme, “elements” offers much to explore: from the concrete definition as an irreducible part of something else, to the ancient worldview that earth, air, fire, and water are the constituents of all things; from the way we think about sorting out and reordering elements when creating new forms, to the feeling of being “in one’s element” or—sadly—out of it.

Finding the Center, 2021 AAW Member Exhibition

Application period: January 1 to March 15, 2021

The theme for the 2021 Symposium AAW member show is Finding the Center. The themes for the annual member show traditionally draw from the host city or state, and since Omaha lies a mere 170 miles from the geological center of the United States, next year’s theme was a natural fit. Working with the idea of center is essential to turning: the spinning axis defines what we do, and the act of “finding the center” is one of the most basic operations.
