Wheels on Fire

Wheels on Fire

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, December 1, 2018

The National Liberty museum invites people who currently identify as women, people who are non-binary, and people who have a history of being assigned female to submit artwork for an opportunity to participate in the upcoming group exhibit entitled Wheels on Fire, opening on March 8, 2019.

The historically male-dominated tradition of tobacco pipe smoking has given way to a less gender-restrictive culture of marijuana glass pipe smoking. Glass work has also traditionally been a male-dominated field. Wheels on Fire will highlight pieces from the diverse range of work that women in the functional glass art community are creating.

The GlassAccess gallery at the National Liberty Museum seeks to spotlight emerging and established glass pipe-makers in our target groups (noted above) who represent a skillful and boundary-pushing force in art, design, and utilitarianism. We are looking for works that break new ground conceptually and technically. GlassAccess is looking for stereotype-smashing submissions of conceptual, sculptural, high-functioning and collaborative works.

The GlassAccess Gallery at the National Liberty Museum will advertise and promote the artists selected for the exhibition and host a formal opening reception.
