Legendary: The Art of Folklore

Drury on C-Street Gallery

Entry Deadline: Feb. 28

From King Arthur to Atlantis to El Dorado, every civilization throughout history has had folklore. These stories uniquely represent a culture while also transcending into a more collective mythos. Legendary seeks artworks inspired by such stories that explore why folktales have gripped human imagination for centuries and still continue their influence today.
