Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: August 30, 2017 – America the Beautiful! Red, white, and blue with studded stars and gallant lights shall ever more gleam through the perilous nights. For the brave and for the sacrifices, for the high and the very low, for whatever we must forego, we will protect our freedoms and remain an inspiration to all nations. And we will decide our destiny as a collective people. To those that sacrifice, to those that build and create, let us celebrate and reflect on the nation that is our home and source of safety, creativity, and wealth. And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave over the land of the free and the home of the brave.

September is the month to reflect on the beauty of our county and the sacrifices of many people throughout the years. The memory of 9/11. Our gains and our loses. Our divisions and unions. Our successes and failures. In the end, we are one nation indivisible with justice and liberty for all.

We are looking for all types of works–painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, video and more–works that express the idea and beauty and perception of America. This show is less political and more of a reflection and appreciation of America as a whole. Red, white and blue, is an obvious palette, but what about majestic landscapes, the work of the people, creativity, food, diversity of ideas, mixing of cultures?… How will the artist represent America. The main criteria for selection is creativity and a fresh approach.
