Our immediate goal is to begin the online exhibition with a small, strong group of international artists whose work [in all media] can be beautifully documented online.
“The mission of this project is to demonstrate how the arts can be an effective tool in raising public awareness about the critical state of our oceans, its role as the fabric of life on our planet, the plight of endangered marine life, as well as the “dance” of interdependency required to sustain its ecological balance… [or about the current imbalance and its affects]. The artwork should not didactically reference these ideas, but most likely will be inspired by some aspect of them and a desire for your aesthetic “voice” to be heard about one of the most important environmental topics of our time.
Our immediate goal is to begin the online exhibition with a small, strong group of international artists whose work [in all media] can be beautifully documented online. This “seed” group provides a way of inviting others to submit their work for consideration, and also inspiring artists to create new work, thus creating a cannonball effect. Growing over the years, we anticipate it will become a major online portal for this environmental [and humanitarian] cause.
Ideally along the way, the online exhibition will:
– become a physical exhibition
– inspire museums to select artists from the online exhibition for their shows
– stimulate science and art teachers/professors to share the artworks with their students for classroom discussion and student projects
– and hopefully, ASCI will produce a coffee-table book of selections from the online exhibition…”
