The International Festival of Burnsville and the Ames Center seek artwork to display at the 9th annual IFB Cultural Perspectives art exhibition. OUR MANY FACES depicts family, community, or cultural connections, at home or across the globe, as we share the common aspects of daily living. With our vast array of facial expressions and body language, we determine how much of ourselves to share with others.

Strive to visually represent a cultural craft, tradition, or value, whether symbolic or realistic in nature, in creating the piece(s). The exhibit features two-dimensional art of any media, freestanding, or pedestal-mounted three-dimensional work, including sculptures, textiles, and photographs.

To present art in the upcoming exhibit, each artist responds to one or more of these questions: how does the piece evoke emotion or behavior that we share?; how is your personal heritage reflected in the art?; how does your work convey a personal memory, story, or event?

By May 30, submit response(s) and photo(s) of titled work(s) to List medium, dimensions, and if for sale, include dollar value.
