Call for entries / Thoreau's Legacy: Humans and Our Habitat

The Union of Concerned Scientists, a major national environmental organization, is issuing a call for entries for original artwork to hang in the public spaces of its Washington, DC, offices for approximately one year. The theme of this juried show, "Thoreau's Legacy: Humans and Our Habitat," is based on the book of essays on the personal impacts of global warming published this year by Penguin Classics and the Union of Concerned Scientists. The jurors are Washington Post art critic Michael O'Sullivan; artist and curator Ellyn Weiss; and artist, graphic designer, illustrator and UCS Communications Director Elliott Negin. There will be a reception and the selected artwork will be available for sale without commission.

The deadline for submittals is January 15, 2010.

Three images should be submitted in CD format to Douglas Pedersen, 1825 K St. NW, Suite 800, Washington DC 20006-1232 or by email to dpedersen{at} Slides will not be considered. Entries should include title, size and medium for each piece as well as a short description of the relationship of the work to the theme.
