I received this from my old friend Dan Beckman in my inbox this week:

Call for all artists, creators, crafters, sculptors,
drawers, writers, instalationists,sound makers,

Waterfall Arts, a contemporary art center located in
Belfast and Montville, Maine is announcing an open
call for artists to participate in its Spring 2008
exhibition: “Treading Lightly: One Foot at a Time.
The “curator” for this open show will be a one cubic
foot box. 12" x 12" x 12" x 12" All work conforming to the “curator’s” dimensions and
the exhibition’s theme will be included in the
exhibition; (2D or 3D) This is an open, non-juried
show. Also, the works can be smaller than one cubic

Criteria for acceptance in the exhibition:
Work should address our human imprint on the earth
reflecting Waterfall Arts’ mission of
“generating awareness of the deep connections between
art + nature in the lives of all people.”
This can be done by simply creating art using recycled
material. Your iterpretation of the Waterfall Arts
mission statement is strongly encouraged
Work can be in any media, but must be one cubic foot
or under in size.
For multiple entries, we ask that your personal
footprint reflect Waterfall Arts' mission statement
and the exhibit title by "Treading Lightly", making
sure there's room for everyone to contribute to the
show. Artists with multiple entriesof more than 5
pieces must also contact exhibit organizer Dan
Beckman by email at or phone at

ready with appropriate hanging hardware. Works will
be installed in the order they are received in

We are expecting hundreds of entries from around the
world to fill the Clifford Gallery and the 5 levels
of the Corridor Gallery for a visual impact on the
grandest of scales.
