CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
MONOLITH VISUAL ART REPOSITORY by SPECTACLE, INC.
Spectacle, Inc. is an art non-profit organization with the mission to create a monumental legacy. We are building Monolith™, the largest single-block, permanent public sculpture, to be created by artist Dario Santacroce. Using the scientific rigor of contemporary material science, we have developed a formula to produce a unique ultra-resistant stone material, capable of withstanding the harshest atmospheric conditions and resisting erosion for millions of years. Monolith™ will be a snapshot of our epoch, and will contain Nucleus™- the vessel designed to carry humanity’s most important legacy through the ages.
CALL FOR ENTRY: MONOLITH VISUAL ART REPOSITORY
