Seeking Submissions for Accretionary Wedge #10: Aesthetic Geology - Geology in Art
The joys of a dead laptop in a foreign country! Sorry I've been away so long again, I returned from Italy and I'm now officially requesting submissions for geology in art (e.g. - paintings, poetry, literature, sculpture, buildings, etc). This possibilities are ENDLESS and I'm really excited to see what you've discovered over the years! I'm bummed that I missed out on Wedge #9 - Significant Geologic Events, although I'm wondering if in a group of this many scientists, did anyone ask how we were defining "significant?" Sorry, flashback to graduate school...
The deadline for submission is June 15 (even though it says June 8th on the Accretionary Wedge schedule) and my only request is that we try to dig up as much background as possible on the origin of the work and possible influences on the artist. Please add a link to your submission in the comments section or shoot me an email.
Let the mafic creativity flow!!!
