and Selection: The curators are looking for drawings of any subject
that are created traditionally or experimentally. Drawing is the
original art and language of man and continues to allow us to
communicate what we see and feel. A drawing can be formal and refined or
expressive and energetic; it can capture our thoughts with doodling,
marks, lines or shaded areas expressing our external world and our
individual thoughts. It is a record of who we are as humans and our need
to connect with each other.
