Seeking 3-dimensional artwork submissions depicting objects which hold the wisdom and embodiment of Self as a Sacred Vessel.


Submissions Open April 1, 2024

MUSEA Intentional Creativity Museum is excited to announce a Call for Art Submissions for the Sacred Vessels Museum Exhibit. 

Dreaming into the possibilities of creating with paper clay or other sculpting mediums (e.g., cement, concrete, Pal Tiya, organic "basket weaving" materials, etc.), we are seeking 3-dimensional artwork that embodies Self as a Sacred Vessel.

The process of using your hands to sculpt a container which holds the sacred wisdom that lies deep within yourself is life changing. The art that manifests is inspiring and impactful to all those who take in the structures. The MUSEA Museum invites you to make a huge impact on those who witness this display of Sacred Vessels during our Exhibit.

What wisdom do you hold?

We are all gifted with immeasurable wisdom - the Ancestors ensure our edification. Share your creative wisdom through sculpture and the gift of Self as a Sacred Vessel. You are invited to interpret this art call in a way that reflects your personal artistic style. However, here are some examples to help spark your creativity:

  • Mixed media altered bottles and/or boxes
  • Handcrafted candle holders
  • Sculpted figurines

Each vessel submitted must contain some aspect of sculpture using the sculpting medium of your choice. A decorative bottle that has paper clay and embellishments added would meet this requirement. In addition, the vessel must be able to hold another object - water, candle, sacred trinkets, etc.

This is an art call for 3-dimensional submissions to be included in this virtual art exhibit. MUSEA Intentional Creativity Museum will host a complimentary Virtual Show of the exhibit that will include presentations by CURATE Shiloh Sophia, and the Museum CoCurator Team on May 14, 2024.

Submission Requirements

  • Up to 3 Submissions per artists that connect to the theme of Sacred Vessels
  • Submit a 30-second video which shows all angles of the artwork. Please refer to this video for insight on how your video should be made. The example video is recorded in portrait orientation; however, your video should be recorded in landscape (wide) orientation. Remove any distractions in the video (e.g., backgrounds, paintings, etc.). Your mobile device should be sufficient for recording the video.
  • Videos must be in mpg, avi, gif, wma formats only. Image must be 800x600 pixels (600x800 for landscape orientation)
  • Optional: As MUSEA has a philosophy rooted in the power of Art + Story, we are asking each participant to share a short poem or writing (200 words or less) that reflects the ‘story’ and context of their submitted image. We encourage you to write this out in a document first and then copy+paste into the submission form so you reduce the chances of losing your written work. 
  • Support the promotion of the Museum Show by inviting at least three guests to attend the show and sharing the event on social media and in your circles.


Please note that multiple mediums of artwork are encouraged, including but not limited to sculptures, pottery, and mixed/multimedia creations.
