"CALL FOR ENTRIES - American Landscape: New Media/New Century Award"
2000-08-21 until 2000-10-02
Smithsonian, American Art Museum and its Renwick Gallery
Washington, DC, USA

The Smithsonian American Art Museum is accepting proposals for original web-based projects that explore the subject of American landscape. Up to three projects will be awarded grants of $4,000 each. In addition, those projects selected will debut on Helios, SAAMs award-winning photography web site. Artists may enter as individuals or as collaborative teams.

Landscape has been a touchstone of American art for over two hundred years. Early painters found inspiration in natural wonders; Hudson River School artists transformed landscape into a national icon; and exploration artists portrayed wilderness as a land of opportunity. When photography was invented in 1839, this new medium revolutionized the way we knew and understood the landscape. Today, new media is again transforming the way artists look at the land, as technology encourages new collaborations, image manipulations, and interactions with audiences. Acknowledging these changes, the Smithsonian American Art Museum is commissioning new online projects through the New Media/New Century Award.

Projects will be considered for their potential to bring new insight to landscape subjects as online art works. Artists who have no web-based experience are encouraged to apply.
