Wide Open 11 (Brooklyn, NY) – Call For Artists

Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition announces a call for artists for Wide Open 11, a national juried show. This call for submission is open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories, 18 years of age or older. The broad theme of Wide Open 11 encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love ‐ wide open spaces…arms wide open…eyes wide open ‐ but as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite ‐ wide open to attack…corruption…failure. What kind of fantasy is this? What does it really indicate? This juried show looks to explore the idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.
