Countless times throughout the day at Tohono Chul people will proclaim to themselves or to someone close by that something they just experienced is “OTHERWORLDLY!.” It might be a plant, a rock, a vista, a cloud, a creature, an artwork; but, whatever it is, what they are truly starting to get their head around is the desert, the Sonoran Desert.  Everything about it offers a unique perspective; simultaneously familiar and alien, it is unlike anywhere else.

ARIZONA OTHERWORLDY will gather fascinating artworks generated by imaginative Arizona artists who challenge themselves to create art that starts in the desert and ends up somewhere else.

Artists are asked to contribute works that represent, relay, conjure, and evoke the otherworldly sense of wonder and the extra-terrestrial vibe this magnificent state possesses: in its sky, in its creatures, in its earth, in its history, and in its artists. The possibilities are endless.

Arizona artists are invited to submit 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works in any media for consideration. Please click here  for the prospectus
