Call for Entry: Sound and Vision Exhibit Seeks Primarily Glass Works (Philadelphia, PA)

Sound and Vision Exhibit Call to Artists

The National Liberty Museum is now extending an open call to ARTISTS to submit artwork for our Sound and Vision Exhibit, April 6 – June 10, 2018. If you are an artist interested in participating, please read below.

The National Liberty museum invites emerging and established artists to submit artwork for an opportunity to participate in the upcoming group exhibit entitled Sound and Vision. We are looking for a diverse body of artwork with a main focus on glass. The GlassAccess Gallery at the National Liberty Museum will advertise and promote the artists selected for the exhibition and host a formal opening reception. Sound and Vision will explore the influence of music on contemporary glass art, showcasing figurative representations of instruments and sound; experimental glass instruments and multimedia works; and sculptural works inspired by musical concepts and experiences.

Musical and visual arts have always been inextricably connected as a means of human language and expression. In addition to its use as a medium for musically thematic and illustrative visual work, glass has been used to physically create music for hundreds of years. Whether by friction, as with the glass harmonica and the crystallophone, or by percussion, as with glass marimbas and instruments like the Thai ranat kaeo, the aural potential of glassmaking has been a fruitful subject of exploration. A renewed artistic interest in the acoustic properties of glass has led to exciting experimentation with form, structure, and performance.
