Expressions: Art & Verse 2022 Festival
CALL FOR ENTRIES:
Expressions: Art and Verse Festival-Juried by Illinois State Poetry Society
Entry Deadline: October 29, 2021
The Addison Center for the Arts is pleased to announce a Call for Artists for our second collaboration between visual artists and the Illinois State Poetry Society. In February of 2020, the ACA hosted the first Expressions: Art & Verse Festival in which ISPS poets chose artworks to inspire a poem. It was a wildly successful and fun mingling of creativity, art, and imagination.
This time we are doing it in reverse. The exhibit will open Wednesday, February 16, 2022. Participating artists will create and display original artworks inspired by a poem. Illinois poets will jury the prospective artists by choosing their favorite from the candidates’ entry images. Once a poet has chosen an artist, they will submit one of their own poems that the artist will use as inspiration for a work of art.
