Space Frontier Art Show

ISDC ‘98 will feature a “Space Frontier Art Show”.
This will be a subject-limited juried art show.
The ISDC ‘98 Space Frontier Art Show Director is Bill Burt (414) 762-9315.

Welcome art will include astronomical and planetary art, artistic depictions of past and present unmanned and manned space activities, and reasonably realistic fictional representations of the opening several decades of the space frontier: i.e. spacecraft, surface vehicles, planetary expiditions, outposts, and early settlements. Humorous treatment is welcome. 3D art is also welcome.

“Fantasy” art, or of media science fiction inspired art, will not be accepted.

Pieces may be submitted for show only, marked NFS (not for sale), or for sale on terms determined by the artist: e.g. set price (first come first served), or posted bid by deadline (Sunday evening, pickup Monday morning) over a minimum price set by the artist. There will be no auction.

Prints are welcome in the Art Show Print Shop.

We expect a brisker market for moderately priced works by non-professional artists.
