Exhibition Summary:
This is a collaborative exhibition that asks artists to respond to the complicated and layered themes around “Migration” as part of a unique visual exploration.

As a natural process migration brings to mind compelling images of caribou herds, butterfly swarms and flocks of birds. An annual ritual following the seasons that sustains these populations and supports others, connecting flora and fauna. There are also migrations that occur as reactions to disasters, from crisis, fear, hunger, political upheaval or war, with whole populations suddenly becoming refugees, endangered, homeless, and immigrant. The impact of change and transition on the environment, on culture, language and on history, is an eternal process that begins with the process of migration.

Each participating artist is asked to create a 15” right-angle triangular print. These triangles will be pieced together, regardless of orientation, to create one large mosaic print.
It is hoped this collaboration will explore this innovative creative participation as well as present visually the conceptual migration of themes and ideas, interactions and interpretations, as the individual becomes part of the whole.

To Participate: This project will be an ongoing traveling exhibition with various venues, beginning with the 2019 SGCI at University of North Texas, Denton at UNT Union Gallery, March 1st-15th, 2019.

Fill out and send in the Participation Agreement!
Artists are encouraged to create more than one print! 
All artists will be identified and listed as participants on an online resource dedicated to this collaborative project, including posters and postcards, along with visual documentation of all artwork committed to the mosaic and publicity for the project.

All prints are the same size: 15” right-angle triangles (see diagram of 2 triangles above) with 21” on long side. Also called Half Square Triangle, so 15"x 15"x 21".
Note that 2 triangles can be made from one 15” square paper or plate and 4 triangular prints are possible from an average sized printmaking paper of 30”x 20”.

Imagery may be abstract, but should contain some reference to the theme of MIGRATION.
Orientation is not guaranteed and triangular, so no edges.
Print to the corners- Bleed Prints only please!
Signatures on the back. Please include a personal statement when filling out your Participation agreement. This collaboration will continue to grow and find other venues, so please become part of the BIG MIGRATION now!"

Don’t Delay! Work must be received in Los Angeles by
