The meaning of beauty has been debated by philosophers since the time of the Greeks. Courted or scorned, distrusted, devalued, deconstructed, beauty promises pleasure while provoking awe, admiration and even fear. Beauty quickens the pulse. Attention Contemporary Artists! OCCCA is now accepting submissions of artworks representing ideas of the beautiful. Painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, installation, and computer-based New Media projects welcomed. Beauty stirs the understanding, and is the enemy of complacency. Concepts alone can never replace it. Beauty’s provocations are no longer innocent.
