Call for Entries: Word Art | Works Inspired By Text presented by Cottonwood Center for the Arts at Cottonwood Center for the Arts, Colorado Springs CO

Artists’ works for this call for entries must integrate at least one word into the piece. All media will be considered.

Word art describes a category of text-based, postmodernist art practiced by several contemporary artists since the 1950s. This type of artmaking encompasses work that includes words or phrases as its primary artistic component. In fact, text-based imagery featuring words and phrases has appeared as a featured element in a variety of different media for centuries including painting, sculpture, lithography, and screenprinting.

Many artists use text to explore a feeling or idea with a word, a word’s phonetic breakdown, a phrase, grammatical structure, or utilize automatic writing styles in posters, books, journals, minimalism and more. In many ways, word art changed the spectrum of art making evolving from absurdist literature into a highly admired practice of contemporary art.

Artists’ works for this call for entries must integrate at least one word into the piece. All media will be considered.
