2014 Call for Artist Flyer
The FSU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities is pleased to announce a Call for Artists for an art competition. Finalists will receive cash prizes, and selected works will be exhibited at the FSU Museum of Fine Art. The exhibition, "What Forever Feels Like: Artists and Autism," centers around personal feelings expressed through art. The title and theme are inspired by the work of an artist on the autism spectrum who likes to use beauty and vulnerability to capture the audience thereby bridging the gaps that separate community, art, and artist.
If you are an artist on the autism spectrum, please consider applying for this exhibition. We will present artwork in any medium and would like to include a statement of why you create art and what it means to you.
Registrations and digital images of submitted artwork are due by September 12th. - REGISTRATION IS CLOSED AT THIS TIME
A jury of local artists will select exhibition artworks and finalists at their sole discretion.
CARD clients who do not wish to reveal their diagnoses are encouraged to enter their work under a pen name. Cash prizes will be awarded to work in top 3 finalist positions in each age bracket and media category. Winners’ artwork will be displayed in the permanent collection of The FSU Autism Institute/CARD.
**Please join us on October 17th at the opening of the 'What Forever Feels Like: Artists & Autism' exhibit at the FSU Museum of Fine Arts and October 23rd for our reception and performance night at the FSU Museum of Fine Arts in Tallahassee, FL.
