Call For Entries: A Simpler Time | Nostalgia

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

Nostalgia is a sentimentality for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations. The word nostalgia is a learned formation of a Greek compound, consisting of nóstos, meaning “homecoming”, and a Homeric word, álgos, meaning “pain, ache.” Nostalgia can refer to a general interest in the past, personalities and events, and the “good old days.”

Nostalgia is triggered by something reminding an individual of an event or item from their past, conjuring emotions that vary from happiness to sorrow. The term “feeling nostalgic” is more commonly used to describe pleasurable emotions associated with and/or a longing to go back to a particular period of time.

Pieces created should invoke a sense of happiness or longing and should be family friendly in nature as this show will hang with Minor Threat. Nostalgic pieces can also include nostalgic materials. Additional research is encouraged. All media will be accepted.
