Opening Reception: September 15, 2017
Exhibition Dates: Sept. 15 to October 11, 2017
 
What’s Your GPS? Your GPS system can pinpoint your latitude, longitude, and altitude, but not your attitude. It will instantly map your starting location to your destination. When does a geographic location become a place? The WorldAtlas description reads: “Place refers to the physical and human aspects of a location. This theme of geography is associated with toponym (the name of a place), site (the description of the features of the place), and situation (the environmental conditions of the place). Each place in the world has its unique characteristics.” This national juried exhibit explores how location transforms into place and how a place may transform you. Is there a setting you love or hate? Is there a “place” that has made you who you are? All media and artistic disciplines are welcome to apply.Cash prizes totaling $1000 will be awarded by the juror.
