In conjunction with the Blanton Museum of Art and its permanent installation, Ellsworth Kelly's Austin, we are seeking ekphrastic and/or inspired work operating in direct response to Austin.
Artists and writers who have visited this incredible space on UT's campus and found it artistically stimulating are welcome to upload their work here.
Guidelines: Original, unpublished work only. Most genres and standard file formats are acceptable. (Please see the note on the Upload File button below about samples and file types.)
We are open to poems, sketches, stories, researched/scholarly articles, visual art, songs, or just about anything. Surprise us!
Selected pieces may be featured on our website, or perhaps hosted on the Blanton's website or promotional materials. Some pieces may be featured in our next issue.
Please specify in your cover letter how your submission is directly inspired by or in conversation with Austin.
Do not upload work that clearly belongs in our general submission categories. (For example, no previously finished stories or poems where you've squeezed in a reference to Austin at the last minute.) We won't consider these.
Show us how Austin has influenced you and your craft!
