The Light Therein
ARTIST CALL FOR ENTRIES
Pandemic, The Light Therein is about what positive light the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to our attention. What is your healing, inspiring, motivating response to it? Or your visual reporting of what healing efforts are going on around you. What favorable results have been unveiled or have happened across the planet? Titles are important here.
A pandemic disease brings to light what needs to be done to improve our global society. Looking at the good the bad and the ugly: confronting the ugly sheds light on the current state of affairs. Looking and actively making a change makes us stronger, better, not weaker. What do you think we need to highlight, expand or nurture in order to achieve a positive outcome?
The cure cannot be just through a vaccine. That may come in a year or two! What can we do? What can we turn our mental energies to in the here and now to heal ourselves and each other? Express your answers through your art. Let your visual fine art be an inspiration during this solemn time.
Advocate for a Pandemic of the Heart, a Pandemic of Strength, a Pandemic of Passion, a Pandemic of Love. The force of hate is always trying to upstage the force of love. Let's win this battle together by making a truly positive impact with our spirits through our art. There cannot be great art without great artists. Show what you've got.
