Calls To Artists

Call to Artists: June 2022 

Music Moves Marion

Description of Exhibit: Throughout history, MUSIC has been credited with the capacity to reflect and influence human emotion. Music is an art form that elevates our souls and brings joy to our life. Whether you’re inspired to create an abstract sculpture when listening to classical jazz, like to paint your favorite Rockstar as your muse, or photograph your guitar collection, MUSIC evokes our creativity in unpredictable ways.

In honor and celebration of the Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series, MCA invites artists working in all mediums to let MUSIC be your main inspiration for your creation! #MusicMovesMarion

Who’s Eligible: MCA Artist Members (New members can join online at mcaocala.org/membership)

Mediums: We invite and encourage ALL artists in any medium to participate.
