EXTENDED DEADLINE: CALL FOR ENTRIES

2nd Annual Juried Art Exhibition: At Home. What does it mean to you?

“You could walk out of the house, but you always returned home.”
— Witold Rybczynski, Home: A Short History of an Idea  

In his short history of the home, the architect Witold Rybczynski examines the concepts of domestic comfort and privacy from the middle ages to today. Rybczynski traces the evolution of furniture and rooms to demonstrate the complex relationships between the form and function of objects and their surroundings. Homes not only reflect the values of society but our dwellings offer insight into our interior and domestic lives as well. For the Second Annual Faculty Commons art exhibition, faculty and staff are invited to engage the theme “At Home.” You are invited contemplate what it means to be “At Home,” even challenge the ideas of the home to expand on notions of being at home or feeling nowhere at home.

Please submit a maximum of 3 works (jpgs or pdfs), a short statement about your art work(s), and approximate dimensions to Sandra Cheng at scheng@citytech.cuny.edu.
