What happens when we zoom in? Take a closer look? Research an issue more intensely? In Close Up we are asking artists to explore the world from a different perspective - one where we zoom in; noticing details/perspectives/concepts that we may miss from afar. We encourage artists to consider this theme broadly and conceptually. Your subject matter can be something literally close up (such as a nose or leaf veins) or conceptual (like a lesser known affect of climate change, or looking closely at systemic racism in the United States). 

Please fill out the form below to submit up to 3 pieces of artwork. 

Deadline for submission: JULY 26, 2020
