The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons is sponsoring a juried, themed
art exhibition, eMotion Pictures: An Exhibition of Orthopaedics in Art.
Open to all artists who presently have, or have ever had, an orthopaedic
condition, artwork must illustrate (though it need not be figurative or
representational) some aspect of the artist's feeling toward or relationship
with the condition, such as pain, recovery, movement, body image, hope,
freedom, restriction, challenge.
Artwork selected by a jury of art
professionals will be exhibited at the J.J. Brookings Gallery in San
Francisco February 27 - March 3, 2001 and again in Washington, DC in April
2001. Selected artwork will also be exhibited at appropriate venues and
press events throughout 2001. The jury will award $2,500 to Best of Show,
and additional awards. See Call for Entries for examples of orthopaedic
conditions and a complete list of eligible media.
Submissions due September 1, 2000.
