Submissions accepted for statewide photo competition at the Bonifas

July 25, 2015  |  by Bonifas Arts Center

New Deadline is Noon on August 21, 2015.



Where has technology brought our culture to date, and where will we go? We are seeking entries that include imagery of the changes that have been brought on by technology.

Transient Moments: Foresight to the Present Sept. 18 - Nov. 4 is a juried exhibit that offers a thought-provoking look at how the arts have had an enduring effect on the chronicling of history and the historical moments that shape our daily lives. We are looking for artwork that depicts changes brought on by technology to our landscape, architecture, communications, economy, or culture in general.
