ARTIST CALL: Vision 2050 "Postcards from the Future" Art in the Atrium Exhibition
Seeking creatives to reveal their visions of the future. Things that were once only imagined are now reality. This is an opportunity to envision the innovations and changes to come.
The Orange County Public Art Review Board in conjunction with the Orange County Planning Department seeks submissions of visual artworks for a gallery experience “Postcards from the Future”. This call requests works that envision Orange County, Florida in the year 2050.
Orange County seeks finished 2D and 3D artwork pieces for an indoor gallery exhibit.
Orange County is a rapidly growing metropolitan area of more than one million residents that contains the City of Orlando and a dozen other municipalities. The Orange County Planning Department is updating the Orange County Comprehensive Plan, which is a document that is intended to guide development over 30 years by establishing the County’s policies and priorities regarding future growth.
Vision 2050 is an update to the Orange County Comprehensive Plan that will focus on future development along with sustainability, resiliency, placemaking, housing affordability, and equity.
Civic engagement is an essential part of the planning process because it is a means for people to bring their voices and to share their own ideas, backgrounds, and experiences to plan for a future that benefits everyone. Art has the power to bring people together and spark conversation. Artists have used their creativity and talent to depict their vision of the future. This call for artists is a collaborative effort where artists share their vision as a memorialization of what the future could bring and as a means of sparking conversation and involvement.
