ART IN MOTION SUBMISSION FORM

This exhibition will feature artist’s interpretation of creative expression through movement and dance.  Dance has long fascinated artists interested in capturing the human body in motion and the spectacle of performance. The exhibit will present art that celebrates the world of dance, motion, interactions and abstract explorations of motion, rhythm, and atmosphere.

Robin Zane, Curator of the Lazarus Gallery, and Jodi Moise, Curator, Art Program and Collection at Montefiore Medical Center will jury this show.
