Call For Entries: COSMOS

Presented by Cottonwood Center for the Arts at Cottonwood Center for the Arts

The Universe is all of time and space and its contents. The Universe includes planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space, the smallest subatomic particles, and all matter and energy. The observable universe is about 28 billion parsecs (91 billion light-years) in diameter at the present time, though the size of the whole Universe is not known and may be infinite.

The region of space within our Solar System is called interplanetary space, also known as interplanetary medium. The Solar System comprises the Sun and the planetary system that orbits it, either directly or indirectly. Of those objects that orbit the Sun directly, the largest eight are the planets, with the remainder being significantly smaller objects, such as dwarf planets and small Solar System bodies such as comets and asteroids.

Human beings have been captivated and inspired by the night sky since the beginning of recorded history. From the ancient Egyptians to the Mayans to the Greeks, we have always been fascinated by what else is or may be out there. Nearly every kind of mythology has a relationship with outer space and many constellations and stars have names derived from ancient Greek mythology. Art created during these periods reflected this tie as well.

Pieces created should celebrate the vast beauty or danger of outer space and can include but are not limited to planets, stars, star systems, galaxies, solar systems, mythology and culture references to outer space, and interpretations of advancement in space travel and the future of outer space exploration. Any science fiction must be based in currently accepted scientific fact. Additional research is encouraged. All media will be accepted.
