Maps draw boundaries. They separate and delineate. Maps can represent the collective journey or a personal quest. Maps show us where we are going and where we have been. Maps draw lines between Us and Them and at the same time show us how to find one another and the places we love.
Submit your work to Art From Scrap’s Fundraiser Lost in Scrap. The 2015 Challenge isMaps. Artists are challenged to incorporate a map into their artwork and as many objects and materials as they like. Art can be in any media: assemblage, collage, photography, paint, video, sculpture, printmaking, etc.
From July 14 to August 22, artists can come into the Art From Scrap Creative Reuse Store to collect their entry form and to pay a $15.00 entry fee. Included in the fee are a $5.00 credit to the AFS Creative Reuse Store, a map, and admission to the culminating fundraiser on October 10th. Participation is open to artists, aged 16 and up. Artists can choose from a wide selection of maps at AFS or use their own.
