Los Angeles, California  Fee: $30.00
Through a powerful multi-media artistic event, Art of the Cosmos bridges art and science to provide a dynamic educational and creative experience meant to activate inquiry and generate enthusiasm about Space and the answers it holds for humanity. Planned to launch in April of 2019 in Los Angeles, Art of the Cosmos is a 4-month long event featuring International artists from vast and varied disciplines including painting, sculpture, photography, music, light, video, glass, multi-media and digital; all inspired by the powerful images of the Hubble Space Telescope.The philosophy at the foundation of The Art of the Cosmos is that Art and Science are a part of a powerful Creativity spectrum, with Art existing at one end of the scale and Science at the other. The intersection where these two disciplines merge is where true and powerful Creativity is activated. Innovation, Imagination and Intuition emerge out of that center point and authentic discovery is made.True Art has strong science built into it – and elevated Science at its heart, contains a great deal of art … at their highest and best, neither can exist without the other. Art of the Cosmos cultivates this common ground to plant seeds of curiosity, creativity and collaboration in the artists and audience alike.In addition to the multi-faceted art collection, the show will also feature ‘Art of the Mission’,which highlights some of the vibrant history and science behind the Hubble quest and introduces some of the future projects in development and the StARs Creativity Conference.(which will run concurrently) Funds raised by Art of the Cosmos will be dedicated to Arts and Science scholarships and education.

Imagine creating positive change through art! RISE: Empower, Change and Action! seeks to bring artists into dialogue and to bring forth what is important to self, community, our nation and the world at large through art that reflects and addresses complex socio-cultural issues and focuses on a vision for a more positive, empowering future, particularly for self-identified women and girls as well as their families. It is underpinned by the feminist principle that believes in political, economic and social equality for all. Art submissions can range from literal to poetic, abstract to representational, and include social and political commentary. The show looks to include the more abstract ideals and universal themes of peace, exploration of belief systems, universal responsibility, and the search for beauty, and transcendence. Artists may submit works that are a source of healing, hope and compassion or instruments of growth, self-discovery, and social or political transformation. We welcome art that reflects personal as well as observed stories, whether myth, fact or fiction. RISE aims to emphasize the commonalities of our human experience.
