North Museum Gallery Call for Artists

From Narcissus to Duchamp transformation has served as muse, as goal, and as punishment. A transformation can move us from struggle to freedom or can be as subtle as a shift in our daily perspective. A spore can become a catalyst to create a new rain cloud and a fire can clear the way for a new beginning.

What’s Your Interpretation?

The Gallery at the North Museum of Nature and Science invites regional artists to submit artwork that asks how can a change of state, a modification, or a metamorphosis challenge our emotional or symbolic perception of reality or the self? What can this transformation reveal?

The surrealist painter Rene Magritte wondered about the human instinct for curiosity: “Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.”

Diverse interpretations are encouraged.
