Opening of YOU-Topia Juried Virtual Art Exhibit
What does your YOU-Topia look like? Artists are constantly responding to the state of the world and creating pertinent work that shapes perspectives and impacts the future.
YOU-TOPIA VIRTUAL OPENING MAY 2
A utopia is defined as an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. The YOU-Topia Juried Art Exhibit opens online during Virtual Akron Artwalk, May 2, 5:30 p.m., 2020, on our Artwalk and Summit Artspace Facebook pages and Instagram. You can also look there for information before the event. Free access to the exhibit and Artwalk.
Winners will be announced on Facebook Live at the 5:30 p.m. unveiling by juror/artist Edith Wadkins of Grove City, Ohio. Cash prizes will be sent to the winners.
During these unprecedented times, imagining a perfect or better world, a utopia, can temporarily relieve anxiety and bring comfort. For this virtual exhibition, artists have been prompted to respond to current events and create work that imagines a better future. The show features different types of media by local artists.
The show can be accessed here after May 2: YOU-Topia Juried Virtual Art Exhibition
