Dynamic features artworks produced only within the last two years (August 2020 - August 2022). Dynamic is an annual opportunity for artists to showcase their current style, aesthetic, and/or bodies of work, regardless of artwork theme, medium, or content during Norfolk’s Annual NEON Festival! The only requirement for this show is that work be created within the last two years (August 2020 - August 2022). We know that exhibition medium and theme requirements can sometimes make it hard to submit your work, so every year we make sure we have one opportunity that gives all artists an opportunity to exhibit!
