A Shenere Velt Gallery of The Workmen’s Circle / Arbeter Ring, Southern California District has issued a Call for Artists to participate in a juried exhibition entitled “R U Envolved? Artists Reflect on Darwin @ 200.” It will be on display January 11 through February 27, 2009, in the Gallery, 1525 S. Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles, CA.

The year 2009 also marks the 150th Anniversary of the publication of his seminal work, “On the Origin of Species” (1859). Repercussions of Darwin’s life project have yet to subside, as headlines of extremist fundamentalist ideologies fill newspapers every day. Even leading candidates for the United States Presidency have recently claimed not to believe in evolution! Anticipating an outpouring of worldwide Darwin observances, we ask artists to consider the meaning of his life and work, and reveal to us any suitable historical or contemporary insights. Artists are asked to submit slides or digital images of up to three wall-hung works in any media (except jewelry and ceramics) that speak to the theme of “R U Evolved? Artists Reflect on Darwin @ 200.” Pieces selected for this exhibition will augment the social space for understanding and dialogue. Jurors are: Paul Von Blum, Sheila Pinkel, and Mark Vallen.
