OBSCURA calls for artists to submit work inspired by the upcoming solar eclipse. Your work can be an artistic documentation, a cosmic abstraction, an emotional portrait, a spiritual interpretation, or an imagined impression of a solar eclipse. 

This theme is very open to interpretation and to any and all visual arts media.

A jury will award the top three submissions with cash awards, and an opening reception at the Curb Center.

Submission deadline: March 15.
