Works of art are now being accepted for an upcoming show called “Blue Mind”. The title refers to a mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peace, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment”. It is brought on by time spent near, in, on, and under water. The aim of this movement is to connect (or reconnect) people to water as a means of enriching their lives on an emotional, mental, spiritual, and social level. With this connection comes a deep love for our waters. (And by loving our waters, we then become good stewards of our waters.) Art work that celebrates the beauty and joy of water is is encouraged to be submitted. Art may be submitted through May 5, 2019 through curatorspace.com/opportunities/detail/bluemind/3196.
