Call for Entry: Creating Connections: 8/25

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire is pleased to announce an open ‘Call to Artists’. As an extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT Project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer a unique opportunity to female visual artists of the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. Collectively, MAP and The CyberWire wish to acquire and possibly commission, time permitting, plus license the image of a work of art. The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 4th Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on October 17, 2017.

ABOUT “CREATING CONNECTIONS”: We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today. The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, we also help individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

As the aim of The CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security and would like to acquire a work of art that reflects the theme of “creating connections.” Inherent in the idea of connections is the idea of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—which may be an important point of departure for acquired or commissioned work. This opportunity is open to female artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.

When we take the time to share in the subtleties of each other’s journey and experience, we become closer as a community, as a world.

Sole Connection offers that opportunity to share personal experiences stemming from something as simple as the shoes on your feet. Help build this archive to at least 5280 “feet” (entries) so that we can truly walk a mile in each other’s shoes.

Please submit work at http://soleconnection.tumblr.com/submit
