Specific Environments: Landscape as Metaphor

The Fort Collins Lincoln Center invites visual artists living in the United States and working in any media to enter Specific Environments: Landscape as Metaphor, a national juried art exhibit with an invitational component. This is not your typical landscape show, but is deeply tied to how we experience and interpret our relationship to the land, the environment, and our surroundings. The focus of the exhibition will center on work that stretches the idea of how we view our environment, surroundings and the ‘scape and scope’ of the land as metaphor for something else entirely.

We encourage the submission of work in all media, including small installations and new media. The exhibition is meant to be a catalyst for new ideas, interpretations and understanding of the human relationship to the land.

VENUE
