Elemental Forces

West Nyack, New York


Identifying renewable energy sources is the greatest issue facing humanity going forward. It is a task requiring the collaboration of scientists, entrepreneurs, businesses, governments and consumers. How can the artist play a role in advancing the emergence of renewable energy? How can artists help inspire dreams of what might be and capture a future world where there is hope?

Artists have always been able to think outside the box to introduce new ideas and creative solutions that interact with our everyday lives. Artists can help educate potential as well as stir humanity to action. This exhibit invites artists to create sculptures using renewable energy utilizing solar, wind, water, geothermal, hydropower, magnetics, sound waves or human power to the potential of alternative energy. Sculptures must harness a component of renewable energy. Examples would be a sculpture to power a water fountain, or charge cell phones, or function as a light, etc. Show us your imagination, innovation, and craftsmanship.

Interested artists are challenged with these questions to address solutions: creating thought provoking works of art for The Catherine Konner Sculpture Park, using these renewable sources. Sculptures will be sited on the 5 acre grounds of The Catherine Konner Sculpture Park.
