The Bridge Project seeks art work and/or writing on 5 x 7 cards that expresses personal connections made with people across differences of age, culture, race, class, religion, ability, sexual orientation, or political leaning. Sponsored by United ShenValley Artists (affiliated with Selah Theatre), the project celebrates our ability to make meaningful connections with others despite perceived barriers.
We will incorporate submitted artwork into a wooden slat rope bridge that will then be displayed at various locations in Warren County and Virginia. We will hold an event to unveil the bridge and read from the pieces created. Artists will also be invited to talk about their work. (Please note that art work cannot be returned.)
Who May Submit: All ages from any location
Deadline: February 15, 2018
Medium: 5 x 7 watercolor paper or other heavy paper
Submissions: Mail finished postcards to Stover Insurance at 214 East Jackson Street, Front Royal, VA 22630, or drop them in designated boxes at Blue Wing Frog, Happy Creek Coffee, or Samuels Library.
Free Workshop: A card creation workshop will be held at Samuels Public Library on January 20 from 10-12.
