Exhibition on display in the Museum’s GlassAccess Gallery,
Friday, January 3 – Monday, February 3, 2020
Philly Loves Bowie Week (January 3-12) is an annual volunteer production created by a family of committed fans of the superstar David Bowie – folks who felt it was important to gather together as a community to celebrate a truly one-of-a-kind performer.
As we mark Bowie’s birth date and the four-year anniversary of his passing in 2020, PLBW (Philly Loves Bowie Week) will once again be hosting events throughout the city of brotherly love to honor the late singer, songwriter and actor – many of which will benefit the Cancer Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The National Liberty Museum will be kicking off this excursion of Bowie-themed events with the We Can Be Heroes exhibition. This exhibition will explore the influence that David Bowie has had and continues to have on contemporary art, showcasing mixed-media artworks with figurative and abstract representations of David Bowie himself.
The National Liberty Museum, in partnership with PLBW, invites emerging and established artists to submit artwork for an opportunity to participate in this upcoming group exhibition. We are looking for a diverse body of artwork with a focus on both 2-D and 3-D artworks. The GlassAccess Gallery at the National Liberty Museum will advertise and promote the artists selected for the exhibition and host a formal opening reception on January 3, 2020.
Artists who use glass, clay, paint, pencil, video, and many other materials as the primary medium of their artwork are invited to submit their works which relate to the general theme of David Bowie.
Submit Deadline is December 1 – for details on how to submit
