Musica! (SAQA Global - All members)   •   National Quilt Museum
Deadline:  May 31, 2019

Classic Greek Philosopher Plato said, "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything." The boundaries between music and art blur, as one becomes inspiration for the other. Both music and art can elicit emotion, create mood, evoke images, suggest movement, as well as reflect light, depth, and color. Over time many artistic practices and processes have been shaped by sound and visual expression. Pablo Picasso said, "To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."

Artists are encouraged to explore the ways in which music can serve as inspiration for the creative process. Artwork may be two or three dimensional, viewed from one side, two sides, or any angle.

Premiere Location

National Quilt Museum
Paducah, Kentucky
March - July 2020

JUROR: Joe Cunningham

Joe Cunningham began making quilts professionally in 1979. His early mentors were steeped in quilt history and traditions, leading Cunningham to a life study in quilt history and a love of traditional technique. Over the years his quilts evolved into his own unique, personal style. His quilts are in the permanent collections of museums, and numerous private collections. Cunningham’s books on quilts include his 2010 book Men and the Art of Quiltmaking, the Shelburne Museum's exhibition catalogue, Man-Made Quilts: Civil War to the Present, and his essay for the de Young Museum show "Amish Abstractions: Quilts from the Collection of Faith and Stephen Brown."
