“Metropolis” Trompe L'oeil Competition: Artists will be performing during a live, juried installation competition. Theme is based on the 1927 film “Metropolis” - one of the greatest achievements of the silent era! A work so audacious in its vision "Heavy going at times but startling set design and special effects command attention throughout. ” A mixed influence from Art Deco, Bauhaus, Cubist, Gothic, and Steam Punk, with special effects of lights and/or technologies will be some of the submissions.
This is a special “Open Call” to tromp l’oeil artists to submit their work (i.e. a vivid sketch, detailed descriptive statement, etc.) via our online application.
Five artists will be selected to create the moving art excavation. Selected artists will be creating their work in designated 10x10 booth areas throughout the festival grounds. The jury will judge for: theme, creativity, and skill. Photographers will be invited to step into each artist’s light while the jury tallies the scores.
