Arnica Artist-Run Centre Call for Light Sculptures (Working Title: Light It Up)


Arnica Artist-Run Centre is seeking proposals for small-to-medium sized illuminated sculptures that project light, shape light, transmit light, reflect light, contain light, or demonstrate the absence of light. Artists are encouraged to explore and combine unconventional materials that respond to light in different ways, and spark thought about illuminating dark spaces in our winter environment.
