The project is a function of the library’s “Libraries Outside” program, and was inspired by a library screening of a feature documentary, “The City Dark,” which examines the impact of constant artificial light and light pollution.
Would-be participants should create, in an art form of their choice, a piece for display in the library, based on their most impactful night sky experience.
Entries should be smaller than two-feet by two-feet and should be delivered to the Alameda Free Library, at 1550 Oak Street, by March 1, 2016 for inclusion in the art installation.
Artists working in forms not readily suitable to static display, such as dance, should attempt to make a visual representation for this project.
All ages and art forms are welcome.
A reception will be held on April 6th at 6:30 pm to celebrate the artists.
