CALL FOR ART: "In the Shadow: Artwork from the Total Solar Eclipse"

Artists, are you inspired by the idea of witnessing a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event? On April 8, 2024, at 3:15 p.m., a total solar eclipse will be crossing over Northeast Ohio. In recognition, Summit Artspace is hosting the exhibition In the Shadow: Artwork from the Total Solar Eclipse for artists who create artworks in response to experiencing this special event. Beginning April 5, artists can submit artwork in all media directly inspired by the total solar eclipse or any artwork inspired by celestial bodies and events. As many artworks will be accepted for display as possible. The exhibition will be on view in the Welcome Gallery and Hallways throughout the building from May 24 through June 15, 2024. According to NASA, “For a total eclipse to take place, the Sun, Moon, and Earth must be in a direct line. The people who see the total eclipse are in the center of the Moon’s shadow when it hits Earth. The sky will become very dark, as if it were night. Weather permitting, people in the path of a total solar eclipse can see the Sun’s corona, the outer atmosphere of the Sun. A total solar eclipse is the only type of solar eclipse where viewers can watch without their eclipse glasses – and they can only remove them when the Moon is completely blocking the Sun.”
