Creative Distancing: An Exhibition of Community Creativity

In response to COVID-19 restrictions, we often refer to a “new normal” where we are apart and yet so connected.
The Art Museum of South Texas will open our doors once again, and when we can, we want to reflect on this time. Each person has endured new challenges and found new ways to cope. We invite the community to be present in the Museum via an image of what they created during this COVID-19 isolation.
On the days that we can invite the public back into the galleries we want to do so with the energy of our local creatives. We seek to show your insights and creative capital by projecting on the walls in the Chapman Gallery. We want to see and show what our community has tried, maybe something new, maybe a continuation. It can take many forms and individuals, of any age, are invited to submit a digital picture of their creations. The mix is the magic.
The ongoing submission process will extend through July 2020. At the conclusion of the exhibition, selected jurors will award prizes and the public will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite online. (1st prize $500, 2nd prize $250, 3rd prize $100, and public’s choice $250)
