Artists, Have You Got Pop? Submit Your Iconic & Absurd

Art: Call to Artists: Liberty Arts gallery seeks progressive, contemporary art that speaks to the various American Pop Culture phenomena throughout the years for its show, “Pop Culture! A Celebration of Iconic & Absurd American Obsessions.”

Entry Deadline:
Friday, March 18, 2011

Exhibition Dates:
April 1 – May 7, 2011

Opening Reception:

Friday, April 1, 2011, featuring live DJ spinning ambient soundtrack.

What does it take to become a household name, a bona fide phenomenon, a blip on the radar of American popular culture?

Which icons of American culture hold special meaning for you? Which obsessions of our collective nation leave you scratching your head in confusion, perhaps feeling old, out of touch, or both?

How is it that some objects of worship are able to transcend generations and manage to maintain a seemingly eternal position at the table of Pop Culture for decades at a time?

Liberty Arts gallery in Yreka wants to see your answers in the form of ART. This is a chance to express the guilty pleasures of your youth, or share your frustration with the ridiculous past-times of today’s youth.

Whether you choose to celebrate, honor, exalt, mock or ridicule is entirely up to you.
