Call for Teaching Artists: Summer Art 2019: Past, Present, Future

The Salina Art Center is now accepting proposals for Summer Art 2019, our annual summer program of classes for art learners of all ages.

This year’s theme, Past, Present, Future, is inspired by Julia Goodman’s installation “200 Year Present” which will be exhibited at the Art Center May 1 – July 28, 2019.

The title is borrowed from activist Elise Boulding, who advocated for considering one hundred years into the past and one hundred years into the future when making current political, environmental and economic decisions. Goodman’s interpretation is meant to inspire leaders who will consider the long term perspective and impact of their decisions.

As always, the theme is suggested and meant to be interpreted broadly enough to encompass a wide variety of techniques, processes, and materials; and if you have an idea that is not related to Past, Present, Future please let us hear about it.
