OPEN CALL: State of the Art: Record Zine Project / Deadline for submissions is May 1, 2022
Visit State of the Art: Record at LSU Museum of Art and take in the way each artist creates, responds, or reflects on a record or the idea of one. Use these questions as a starting point: What does it mean to record? What constitutes a record? Who creates the record and can a record be changed? Respond to these ideas or create your own record in any form you desire. Poetry, painting, photography, collage–anything is fair game. Responses will be compiled into a zine to be released before the exhibition closes.
How to Submit: Email firstname.lastname@example.org (Sarah Amacker, LSU MOA Communications and Marketing Specialist) or mail original work to the museum:
LSU Museum of Art, 100 Lafayette St., Shaw Center for the Arts, 5th floor, Baton Rouge, LA 70801. Submission Deadline is May 1, 2022
