CALL FOR ENTRIES

On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo Da Vinci’s death, the Italian Cultural Center of Maryland (ICCM) in collaboration with Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), the Maryland Aviation Administration (MAA), and office of First Lady Yumi Hogan is pleased to announce a Call for Entries for two art exhibitions celebrating the genius of the Renaissance.


The exhibition pieces may include works that reinterpret or reimagine Leonardo’s originals. The exhibition pieces will ultimately reflect Leonardo's legacy of creating art that rests on a foundation of inquiry and knowledge. Entries should visualize or materially reflect on laws of nature and/or the order of the universe, both natural and human-made (including but not limited to current events, historical events, political concepts, and human emotions).


The two exhibitions will take place in September, 2019. One will take place at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, and other will take place at the National Italian American Gallery (NIAG) at the ICCM. The exhibitions will continue until January 2020.

Entries represent an excellent opportunity for emerging and mid-career artists/photographers to broaden their career path while having their work marketed on display and available for sale. Selected works will be sent to an exhibition in Italy to be held in 2020.


July 3rd, 2019 - August 30th, 2019

Online applications are due by, 11:59 pm at https://www.judgify.me/ICCMLEO500
