Board: out of our minds!

Artists and ‘artists of the mind’ from DC, MD, VA and WV are invited to explore the broad concept of board games. There is a $1500 prize awarded to an invited artist, a $1000 prize to an artist selected from this call, a $500award for game design – and a viewer’s choice award of $500 determined by popular vote.

Entries might be based on a real or imagined game, an environment where games are played, or people’s relationships to board games. Entries that demonstrate creative brilliance through the core concept and game design are encouraged as well as purely aesthetic works.

Consider games as a means of dealing with social issues or escaping reality; games as path to justice.  A game might be way to explore the world or experience other cultures. Entries might be inspired by favorite childhood games or today’s issues such as climate change or political rancor.
