Brooker Creek Preserve sponsors juried art exhibition for 6th-12 graders - Deadline March 28

CALL FOR ENTRY

Wild About Art: Creative Expression of the Natural World

The Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center is sponsoring a juried art exhibition for grades 6 – 12. The exhibition will be of two-dimensional works. The theme for the exhibition is
“Watersheds Connect Us All.”

THEME: We all live in a watershed and rely on the plants, animals and natural systems that are found there to maintain clean, healthy fresh water. Because water moves downstream in a watershed, any activity on the land or in the water that affects water quality or quantity at one location can change what the water is like at places downstream. To learn more about the Brooker Creek watershed, visit: http://www.pinellascounty.org/brooker/home1.htm or visit the Center and Preserve for inspiration.

Each entry must also include a written statement about or relating to the artwork.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Artwork must be 2-dimentional and written statements should be in best handwriting or typed, and must relate to the artwork and theme.
Artwork and writing must be mounted or matted together to exactly 18 x 24 inches. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Each teacher may submit up to five pieces (total) for judging. ARTWORK THAT FAILS TO MEET THE SPECIFICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

DELIVERY AND RETURN OF ARTWORK
All work MUST be delivered to either the School District Administrative building (Visual Arts Office) or the Center by Friday, March 28, 2008.
Each piece must have a Wild About Art label (taped at the top of the label) to the back filled out completely.
Works can be picked up at the Center for 3 weeks after the close of the exhibition. After that, it will be returned to the Visual Arts Office at the Pinellas County Schools Administration Building for teachers to pick up.
Pinellas County is not responsible for any damage to artwork.

SELECTION CRITERIA: Judging will be in three categories:
Artistic merit: Originality, skill & technique, personal artistic vision and style.
