                          “EVOLUTIONARIES: ART & HEALING”

Artists are often at the forefront of any (r)evolutionary movement, and many have an intuitive
understanding of the body-mind-soul connection. „Evolutionaries‟ foster a self-aware, life-
affirming, and sustainable direction in their lives. They deepen their understanding of conscious
change, and apply that awareness to their families, workplaces, communities, nation and world.
These individuals are working individually and collectively to become a conscious force for
evolution on all levels. This national Call for Entries focuses on the interaction between art
and healing and features the theme of „evolutionary spirituality.‟ Subject matter can deal with
personal, political, or environmental healing. The jurors seek metaphorical or representational
work created in a range of art media.

The art gallery exhibition will be on view from June 13 to August 6, 2011. To further the
impact of this project, an online gallery and a Blurb book will be created. These additional
components may feature artworks not chosen for the gallery exhibition. Pending sufficient
entries, awards will be given to a selected number of participating artists, including First,
Second, Third awards and Honorable Mentions.
