This exhibit, which is one of the highlights of Silvermine Arts Center’s yearlong centennial celebration, will be curated by critic and curator Lilly Wei. The exhibition will commemorate Silvermine’s many past achievements by looking forward. The curator is asking that artists submit (remarkable, original) projects in any medium, stylistic mode, or genre that reflect their vision of what that future might look like, and how it might be manifested.
