House of Shadows Presents

Cool World

Saturday, August 21, 2021 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Popular culture encompasses the most immediate and contemporary aspects of our lives. These aspects are often subject to rapid change, especially in a highly technological world in which people are brought closer and closer together by an omnipresent media. 

We are looking for work that visually touches on these fundamental aspects while also highlighting the personal influences, interests, and identity of the artist.
