Word: Art Meets Advertising: November 7-December 5, 2020

Word: Art Meets Advertising: November 7-December 5, 2020
Featuring Artwork by: Chris Krieg, David Russell, David Conger, Mark David Baer, Will Krieg

Word: Art Meets Advertising explores the intersection of the creative experience and everyday life. What is the shared experience encountered when navigating the public realm whether it is the streets of the urban core or the latest social media platform? As text, signage and various forms of visual language are used in the advertising industry; it can also be re-appropriated in an art context representing place, identity and interconnectivity. Art can function in multiplicity.  Word: Art Meets Advertising aims to represent artworks that straddle the precipice of arts’ autonomy and art and design that functions in daily life.

Hear Me: Teen Show January 22-February 20, 2021
Guest Jurors: CAE Teens Arts Council & CAE Curatorial Committee

Now more than ever teens are interested and involved in social, political, mental health, and environmental issues that the world faces. As young people, these issues were passed on from previous generations, but teens are affected nonetheless. The demand for change seen throughout 2020 has empowered teenagers more than ever before. The desire for involvement in political, environmental, and social awareness issues is strong in the face of these difficult times. As a community, recognizing the power of our young people can keep their desires for change alive and help them find their voice.

Center for the Arts Evergreen’s (CAE) teen exhibition, Hear Me, seeks 2-D, 3-D, or video artwork that reflects on the issues that are most important to teenagers today and will provide a platform for others to see and understand today’s teenagers through their art. Hear Me: Teen Exhibition welcomes students of ages 13-18, in public, private, or home school to enter one piece of original artwork online at www.evergreenarts.org/HearMe. There is no entry fee for this competition and there are awards given for First Place ($200), Second Place ($150), and Third Place ($100). This exhibition will be curated by the Center for the Arts Evergreen’s Teen Arts Council with help from CAE staff and CAE’s Curatorial Committee.
