Open call for science art submissions

artsciArt & Science Collaborations have put out an open call for art submissions to an upcoming exhibition around the theme of Biodiversity and Extinction.

“We hope to demonstrate the wide diversity of visual tropes that today’s artists are employing to reflect upon the crisis of biodiversity loss and species extinction. We are seeking images of original art executed in any media for this international show.”

The exhibition will be held at the New York Hall of Science from October 10, 2015 to February 28, 2016.

Two jurors will evaulate the submissions: Elizabeth Corr, Manager of Art Partnerships at the Natural Resources Defense Council, will serve as Art Juror, while Dr. Paula J. Ehrlich, president and CEO of the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation is the Science Juror.

The deadline for submission is August 23rd. More information is available on their website, including a link to the guidelines.

You can have a look at last year’s science art exhibition (on the topic of the brain) online as well. The image below is a partial image of one of last year’s selected art works – a print showing a cartoon map of the brain, by José Miguel Mayo.
