Night Visions III Call for Submissions

Night Visions III
27 September - 6 November, 2008

Coconino Center for the Arts, Flagstaff, AZ

Postmark Deadline for submissions: August 11

Artists are encouraged to submit work that explores or celebrates the night, the naturally dark sky, or the stars. The work in this exhibit should reflect the deep, positive connection that human beings can have with the nighttime.

Night Visions is a partnership between the Flagstaff Dark Skies Coalition, Northern Arizona University’s Program in Community, Culture, & Environment, and Flagstaff Cultural Partners.

Prizes will be awarded for best of show ($1000), First Place ($750), Second Place ($500), and Third Place ($250).
