Name: Hypotheses – Call for Artists
Organization: Columbus Cultural Arts Center
Description: “Hypotheses: art inspired by the many worlds of Science” - An open-call to artists residing/working in Ohio

In the Fall of 2018, the Columbus Cultural Arts Center (CAC) will host an exhibition of contemporary works by Ohio artists in a challenge set forth by guest curator, artist Amandda Tirey. Hypotheses: art inspired by the many worlds of Science asks artists to explore how concepts and discoveries from all branches of the sciences inspire artists working in a range of media and art forms. Art and science as creative endeavors have a long association, and indeed are often considered two sides of the same coin. The imaginings of science fiction writers has led to new innovations. Artists are employed by scientific institutions to imagine things too small or distant for direct observation – extra-solar planets; the workings of atoms. Sculptors working for museums give life to the skeletal remains of extinct species and human ancestors. Science returns the favor by bringing into existence new materials and techniques for creative manipulation, from paints and media, to LED lighting, to musical synthesizers, to virtual reality systems.
