40 West Arts Call for Entries: “Rolling Route 40 Revisited: The Art of the Wheel”

Entry Deadline: Friday June 19th, 2015 Extended to Tuesday June 30th

2015-rolling-route-40-revisited

Key Dates:
  • Exhibition: July 29th – August 29th
  • Wednesday, July 29th, 2015: 5-7pm / Show Opening
  • Saturday, August 8th, 2015: open 12-6pm; Extra hours at the gallery in conjunction with West Colfax MuralFest, occurring ½ block adjacent.
  • http://www.westcolfaxmuralfest.org
Join 40 West Arts for Rolling Route 40 Revisited – The Art of the Wheel Show, an art exhibition that will celebrate our transportation corridor history and its future. This show will expand upon the interest and range displayed at last year’s Hubcap Art Show. The culture along Highway 40 has been a key transportation corridor for the past century – from rail and streetcars, to the explosion of the automobile traveling culture of the 50’s. Colfax drivers whipped up and down the road to the Rockies, stopping in the many neon-lit diners and motels along the way. Today, we celebrate the multi-modal transportation corridor we have become – light rail, cars and car shares, bicycles, scooters, strollers, rollerblades, wheelchairs, steering wheels, and more.

Thus, it is a natural fit for our next 40 West Arts Show to feature the wheel as source for inspiration. Artists are invited to start with any wheel they wish. We invite visual artists of all kinds—painters, photographers, sculptors, mixed-media artists, etc. From there, get creative and transform this everyday item into something magnificent! Any medium or media allowed. Use your imagination. Stretch the boundaries. Travel 40 West again with your art.
