CALL FOR ENTRIES: The Happiness Show
July 12 – August 26, 2023
CAVA's Summer Theme Exhibition at
Epiphany Center for the Arts
201 South Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60607
Sometimes the smallest things
make us happy.
“…the little stone whose ‘coat of elemental brown a passing universe put on.’”
The smallest things can surprise and delight,
and fill us with wonder and joy. This exhibition asks CAVA artists to channeled their creative vision to counterbalance these challenging times, and address the question, “What does happiness mean to you today, in the here and now?“ We invite you to create work specifically for this exhibit with happiness in mind!
