What is the Art & Words Collaborative Show?
In Fall of 2012, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam curated the first Art & Words
collaborative show at Art on the Boulevard. She accepted eleven visual pieces
of art and eleven written (poetry, flash fiction, and flash nonfiction). Each
writer whose work she chose then chose one piece of visual art on which to
compose a new written work. Each visual artist then chose of the written
pieces on which to create a second visual work. On October 6, 2012, Bonnie
displayed all forty-four pieces of visual art and written work at Art on the
Boulevard in Fort Worth, Texas, for one week.
Now the Art & Words show is an annual event, taking place every Fall.
Submissions are open each year from March 1st to April 1st. If you'd like to
submit, please send up to three .jpgs of your visual work or up to three .rtfs
or .docs of written work (up to 1,000 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be
sure to include “Submission” in the title. Unpublished or previously published
work are both accepted. Submitters who submit three pieces will have a better
chance at being selected.
The Art & Words Show was profiled in the March/April 2014 issue of Poets & Writers.
