Arlington Public Library’s Art Committee is seeking artists from the Metro DC region who create art related to Food and Food Sustainability, for a juried exhibition April 2 – April 30, 2010.

This exhibition will be held in conjunction with the Arlington Reads 2010 program.  Inspired by Wendell Berry’s  The Memory of Old Jack – the musings of an elderly Kentucky farmer on the “truth and integrity of the land” – we are looking for art that uses food as a theme or element, or explores the ideas of “You are what you eat,” what we eat, where/how we eat, who/what eats, the nature of food, where it comes from, how it sustains us/the land, etc.
  • Application Deadline: March 26, 2010
  • Download the prospectus.

Artists are encouraged to use recycled material in the creation of their art, but this is not a requirement. Artwork may be 2-D, 3-D or photographic in nature. This opportunity is open to local artists who, if selected, are able to hand deliver/pick-up their work at Arlington Central Library.
