Pompeii Reimagined
A juried exhibition of artwork inspired by classical art with a contemporary spin.

This project is supported by Orlando Science Center for the exhibition of Pompeii: The Immortal City, funded by Orange County Government through the Arts and Cultural Affairs program. For more details please visit

Subject matter should be along the following themes/mediums with contemporary elements: Ancient Rome, Roman gods, classical pottery, ancient architecture columns, volcanoes, antiquities, etc.

* We aren't necessarily looking for art that is a replica of Ancient Roman art. We are looking for concepts that have a contemporary spin! *

There will be a $500 prize for Best in Show, $250 (2nd place), and $100 (3rd place). All mediums accepted. We are also interested in mediums commonly used in ancient Rome (Ex. terracotta, fresco, clay, metals, glass, etc.)

Please keep in mind this is a juried show with limited space, so only 4 submissions per artist please.

Cost: 1st piece FREE to submit, additional submissions $10 each (Up to 4 total submissions accepted per artist. Example: If all 4 of your submissions are accepted, you will pay $30 total.)
