Opportunities for artists

The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center 2016–2017 EXHIBITION SERIES | Time: Entropy and Change
The concept of entropy is often defined as nature’s tendency to move from order to disorder. Other ideas associated with entropy are: a lack of predictability, change in condition or appearance and gradual decline over time into disintegration or dissolution. In nature, this phenomenon is seen in the slow degradation of elements such as stone or wood, or in a myriad of other possibilities. Time is the key to both entropy and change, whether in nature or in human lives.We invite artists to propose an individual or group exhibit that expresses or relates to these intertwined concepts.  
The Department of Visual and Performing Arts is calling for exhibition proposals for the Open Gallery in The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center that address the theme, “Time: Entropy and  Change”. Four exhibitions will be scheduled for the 2016–2017 academic year.
