Labels: Face Value

Saturday, October 3, 2020, 12:00 AM - 3:00 AM

Cottonwood Center for the Arts is excited to present a juried exhibition, composed of artists from across the Pikes Peak region, working across every size and medium within the theme of labels and their application in the arts.

A label is the branding or packaging of a product. Art and design come together to elicit emotional and physical responses about the product behind the label. From craft beers and spirits to hot sauces, a perfectly labeled bottle can compel our selection as much or more than its contents. This call for entries asks artists to create an actual label for a real or imagined product. Labels may be enlarged for display purposes and must be presented either adhered to a product or appropriately framed and wired.

Alternatively, a label can be the way a person or group of people is categorized, defined, or stereotyped. Unlike product branding, this label is usually negative, describing its target in a limited, narrow, overly simple way.

This call for entries asks artists to create work that addresses social labeling. All media will be represented, except for collages made out of actual labels.

Artwork on display until October 31st.
