Eco artists: Win a chance to exhibit in NYC
A new Environmental Art Prize will give one green-minded artist a chance to exhibit at Nabi Gallery in New York City.

Not all the artworks I just mentioned are eligible for this prize though. The winning artist’s prize is a chance to feature his or her work in an exhibition at New York’s Nabi Gallery
in June and July, 2010 — which means the artworks have to be paintings, drawings, prints, or mixed media pieces that will fit neatly into the gallery. Photos, sculptures, videos, and conceptual or performance art pieces aren’t eligible.
Want to enter? Select six environmentally-themed art works — keeping in mind that “the goal of the prize is to remind viewers of the earth’s natural beauty and to draw attention to the serious environmental threats facing our planet.” Then upload images of them to Flickr and tag them “nrdcartprize” by April 6, 2010. On Earth Day, you’ll find out if you’re one of the finalists selected by the jury. The winner will be announced in May.
Curious to check out the competition — or just to see what contemporary eco artists are up to these days? Just search for the “nrdcartprize” tag on Flickr
to see all the entries. So far, the Environmental Art Prize has one entry — from Zach and Kim DeBord, of the creative team Fade to Future — which you can see above. Visit their Flickr page
to see bigger versions of the work.
