3D Expression (SAQA Global - All members)   •   Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum
Deadline:  February 28, 2019


This exhibit will feature contemporary 3D artworks exclusively. The 3D artworks may be, but are not limited to wearable art, dimensional quilted items, vessels, and sculptural works. Wall-hung artwork will be allowed but must be 3-dimensional per the depth requirements listed below.

Be creative in showing how textile art can expand both into the third dimension and in the future. The work may be practical, infused with meaning, or decorative, but it must meet SAQA's definition of an art quilt. SAQA defines an art quilt as "a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure."  

This exhibition will premiere at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan in September 2019.
