From amoeba to zebra, extinct to extant, real to imagined, this show invites artists to submit works impelled by the animal. The jury seeks pieces revealing the anima, the vital breath or soul of animals, and works reflecting the diversity of animals – from microscopic to enormous, from active to sedentary, from simple to complex. The call is open to all media with the goal of creating a diverse and exciting exhibition. Ultimately, each piece selected must vitally locate it’s genesis in the appearance, shape, sound, smell, energy, diet, behavior, history, prehistory, or folklore of wild things.
