Submission Deadline: Sunday, November 7th 2021.
The Edison and Ford Winter Estates is hosting our fourth annual Art Show. This year’s show is titled “Sustainable Conceptions” and is open to all artists. The show will run January 2022 through June, in the historic Edison Caretaker’s House. This structure is located on the Riverside of the property and displays our temporary exhibits. This year we are expanding our horizons and opening the show up to larger pieces that can be displayed outside for the duration of the show.
About Sustainable Conceptions:
Did you know, Henry Ford repurposed wooden crates used to transport material as floorboards for his automobiles? Or that Thomas Edison encouraged purifying chemical solvents to be reused while working on his rubber project in his Fort Myers Laboratory? While the Green Movement was not popular during their lifetimes, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford both recognized the importance of recycling and reusing materials. This year we would like to showcase art inspired by Edison and Ford’s efforts to reuse products and their abilities to work towards a sustainable future.
It’s encouraged to enter one or two works of art into this show. Please refer to the exhibit specifications for more detail.
