BUG-INSECTUM

An International Call for Works About Bugs

Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center   /   Deadline: 10/08/19

Download in PDF Format

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works about bugs. For many, bugs are notorious. They freak people out, even the ones that don't readily sting, bite, or infect. Some do massive damage to people, other animals, homes, and each other. But by and large they are the dominant denizens of this planet, mysterious and ubiquitous. Perhaps we are lucky they tolerate us at all. This show honors them, both in all seriousness and in light-hearted play. After all, without them we'd likely not be here at all.


Location

Manifest Gallery2727 Woodburn AvenueCincinnati, OH 45206

Fees

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.

Eligibility

Submissions must in some way address the theme of Bugs, including any and all insects, spiders, and similar creatures large and small, real or imagined. Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the theme.
