2019 NightVisions Satellite Exhibit Prospectus

2019 Celebration of the Night – NightVisions VII

Invitation to host a Night Visions Satellite Exhibit

More than two-thirds of Americans live where they can no longer see the Milky Way galaxy because of light pollution. We have grown so isolated from night that in much of our culture it has become alien and fearful. NightVisions seeks to re-open our positive connections to the natural night and to bridge the divide separating artistic from scientific perception, promoting the idea that science and art are two intertwined aspects of human experience.

NightVisions VII Call for Entries

Since 2001, the Flagstaff Dark Skies Coalition (FDSC) in collaboration with the Coconino Center for the Arts has produced seven Celebrations of the Night. The Celebration is anchored by NightVisions – an international, juried art exhibit at the CCA gallery. We are offering here an opportunity for you to participate in the 2019 Celebration of the Night through the presentation in your business of art related to the night.

What you do:

  • Commit a portion of your venue or gallery to art consistent with the NightVisions theme (above), to be on display from 15 April through 31 May 2019. We ask for a minimum of 10 pieces and 50 ft.² of exhibit space. This exhibit space will be clearly labeled as “NightVisions Satellite Exhibit” utilizing a placard/sign that will be provided by FDSC. Artwork in your gallery can be available for retail sale as any other items in your gallery, but if the exhibit becomes significantly depleted before May 31 we ask that additional pieces be installed.
  • Provide copy material for a brochure that will be made available to all attendees at the NightVisions exhibit at the Coconino Center for the Arts. Material should include at least one image, and must fit within 3.5 in. (v) x 4.5 in. (h). This material should include the name of your gallery, address, and hours. Optional material would include the names of featured artists or pieces, and media (e.g. photography, ceramic, painting). This material will also appear on the Coalition webpages and social media posts promoting the Celebration.
  • Submit your NightVisions Satellite Exhibit application here. A fee of $25 offsets printing costs for the brochure and signs.

What we do:

  • Promote your Satellite exhibit throughout the Celebration and NightVisions, including through a brochure at the NightVisions opening reception and through the Coalition’s webpages and social media outreach during the Celebration.

To celebrate, promote, and protect the glorious dark skies of Flagstaff and northern Arizona.
