I know that many of you who check in on this site work with a variety of creative media. Given that, you may be interested in participating in a special event recently announced by the Prayer Flag Project:
CALL TO ARTISTS
PRAYER FLAG PROJECT
Give visual voice to your prayers by creating a prayer flag and submitting it to OMA’s Prayer Flag installation on view at Oceanside Museum of Art October 14 through December 31, 2012. Artists are invited to design a unique flag made of fabric and other materials that reflects their current and future hopes and dreams. Flags should be approximately 5” x 8” with a 3” sleeve on the top-backside of the quilt and must arrive at Oceanside Museum of Art by September 21. Please include your name, date and the desired prayer on the back of the Flag. It is suggested that the artist uses an iron on fabric label for this information.
Please address or deliver Flags to following address
OMA Prayer Flag Project
Oceanside Museum of Art
704 Pier View Way
Oceanside, CA 92054
Artists are responsible for mailing and/or delivering their prayer flag. Flags will only be returned if the artist includes a self-addressed and stamped envelope. All other flags will become property of the museum.
I am trying to think what I wish to focus on in the flag I’m going to make for this . Since Prayer Flags are a part of Buddhist tradition and since that is how I am so inclined, that is the direction I will head in. Will keep you posted!
Drop a line if you are going to participate in this, too!
