Future Places

Future Places

7th Annual Juried Exhibition



What does a better future look like to you as an artist? Susquehanna Art Museum is challenging artists to render their vision of a promising future for its exhibition Future Places. We believe that artwork addressing this theme will bring the viewer one step closer to imagining a better world. Allow your unique creativity to describe a place where artist and viewer can thrive.

Applicants are encouraged to depict spaces where innovation is valued and essential. Submissions may illustrate imaginative landscapes, technology, ecology, and architecture, as well as demonstrate concepts and values that are important in the social systems of the future. The exhibition is meant to inspire viewers to consider the state of humanity while incorporating hope of what may come.
