WHAT:Wabi Sabi Warehouse is calling out with a loud voice for MAP ART. Art made from Maps, Maps made from Art, Mapping, Journeying, Topography in this or other dimensions, from Here to There, Map Quest, Directions, Cartography, Street View, etc, etc, and so on. Your interpretation is correct.
WHY:This exhibit is inspired by the map-making work of artist and founder of the 1st National Church of the Exquisite Panic, namely, Robert Delford Brown and his prolific creation of maps to Nevada. What he said: "Many religions teach how to get to Nirvana. They all give very complicated directions. The First National Church of the Exquisite Panic, Inc tells you how to get to Nevada. It sounds close and it's simple. You take a bus!" Maps for this exhibit can take this into account or not. We'd like to see what you say.
DIRECTIONS:Artists interested in submitting work for this exhibit should contact Gallery Manager Gina at firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide 2 things: 1. Approximate thoughts about the media you will use for your piece. 2. Approximate thoughts about the size of the intended piece.
