LBI National Juried Competition

The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences (LBIF) is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting current trends in the arts and sciences through exhibitions, classes, and programs. Located on a picturesque barrier island off the coast of New Jersey, the LBIF hosts approximately 30,000 visitors each summer.

About the Exhibition:
The LBIF encourages emerging artists as well as those with established reputations to participate in the National Juried Competition. The purpose of this exhibition is to showcase contemporary works of art created through digital processes that reflect innovative use of media, technical excellence, and personal vision. Works submitted may be two-dimensional, three-dimensional, or virtual. All entries must be original and must have been executed since 2007.

Juror: Marisa Olson

Her critiques of contemporary art and digital visual culture have extended to writing for Flash Art, Art Review, Afterimage, Planet, and Art on Paper, and to curating exhibitions at the Guggenheim, SFMOMA, White Columns, Artists Space, SF Camerawork, and Rhizome.
