Call to Arizona artists for ‘Unplug’ exhibit at the Herberger Theater Center

By SoAzNewsX

Arizona artists (18 and older) are invited to submit up to six pieces of art for consideration in Unplug, on display March 2 – April 30, 2018 at the Herberger Theater Center, 222 E. Monroe Street in Phoenix.

Technology is everywhere and very relevant, but perhaps more essential is finding time to unplug… to look up… to just breathe. The art in this exhibit will reflect the countless ways to refresh our body, mind and spirit through literal and/or metaphoric expression.

Guest curated by Kim Walker, the exhibit is open to original two- and three-dimensional solo or collaborative work. Artists are selected to display and sell their work through a blind jurying process based on aesthetic, stylistic and/or technical presentation. The jury will consist of artists from various disciplines.

The completed prospectus, $25 non-refundable fee and required CD or flash drive of art images must be postmarked or hand-delivered to the Herberger Theater Box Office by 5pm
on October 13: For information, contact Laurene Austin at or 602-254-7399, Ext. 105.

Sponsored by Billie Jo and Judd Herberger, the Herberger Theater Gallery is a self-funded exhibition program that promotes contemporary art by Arizona artists. A portion of the proceeds from each piece sold benefits the HTC’s Youth Outreach Programs.
