Call for Submissions The Art of Time
International Deadline: February 28, 2017 – The National Watch and Clock Museum issue a call for artists for the upcoming exhibition ‘The Art of Time’.
The National Watch and Clock Museum was officially opened to the public in 1977 with fewer than 1,000 items. Since that time, the collection has increased to almost 13,000 items. Today, the museum is recognized as the largest and most comprehensive horological collection in North America.
This exhibit invites artists to create their own artistic interpretations of an object within the museum’s collection using any medium they are comfortable with. Artists are encouraged to be as creative as they would like in creating works of artistically inspired pieces by either visiting the museum or viewing the entire museum collection online.
Open to artists and students working in all media.
This exhibit will be located in the special exhibit gallery in the museum. The space is approximately 450 square feet. Twelve exhibit display cases (25” x 16”) are available for works needed to be protected under glass. Artists are welcome to visit the museum and study the object in person before submitting their work. Please email curator Kim Jovinelli at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
There is no entry fee.
