Departures Call for Artists


The Salina Art Center and heart land prairie cemetery invite artists residing in Dickinson, Ellsworth, Lincoln, McPherson, Ottawa, and Saline Counties to submit works of art for the 3rd annual Departures: The Art of Leaving this Place

This exhibition seeks art inspired by end-of-life, aging, dying, death, loss, bereavement, or spiritual and philosophical perspectives relating to these topics. Artists may submit up to 3 works for consideration. In addition to the exhibition the Salina Art Center will be hosting other events to help facilitate discussions on death and dying, culminating on Halloween and All Souls Day as we celebrate and honor the dead.

Each submission must include a narrative by the artist, not to exceed 200 words, telling the story behind the work. Submissions without a narrative will not be considered for inclusion.
