Sky's the Limit

Deadline: January 30, 2009 (RECEIVE)

Sky's the Limit

Creative Arts Workshop
New Haven, CT
April 10 to May 15, 2009

This exhibition actively seeks audacious art projects that address the relationship of our physical environment to human life. An improbable scenario, a disruptive innovation. An idea that is explosive, but you may never have developed it fully because it seemed impossible to realize. Your submission may be visualized using drawing, painting, digital imagery, photography, sculpture, installation, or any hybrid format.

Works that are the result of personal inquiry or independent research are actively encouraged. Works may explore issues of environmental sustainability, industrial and cultural production, the limits of materials, the trajectory of human consumption, or the human condition with respect to the physical world.


Open to all media. Work must be exhibition-ready and able to pass through a doorway measuring 80 by 40 inches. No piece may exceed a weight of 75 pounds. If framed, please indicate glass or plexiglass on back. Exceptions to any of these requirements must be justifed in writing at the time of entry.

Artists may submit up to three entries. Each entry must be accompanied by a separate entry form and applicable fee.

Work will be selected for the exhibition by the juror on the basis of digital image entries. Award winners will be chosen from actual work. Two artists will be awarded a joint exhibition/installation at CAW in 2010.
