OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS
The exhibition committee at Elon University is currently accepting proposals for solo and small group exhibitions for the 2013-14 academic calendar. Priority will be given to work that is in dialogue with contemporary practices and ideas. The exhibition would ideally then be used to expand or frame conversations about contemporary definitions of art, materiality, and/or process. All mediums will be considered. Visit our Art>Exhibitions section for further info.
