For my part, writes Robert Louis Stevenson in Travels with a Donkey, "I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move." Sounds like a case of wanderlust if we ever heard one. Those with "wanderlust" don't necessarily need to go anywhere in particular; they just don't care to stay in one spot. The etymology of wanderlust is a very simple one that you can probably figure out yourself. "Wanderlust" is lust (or "desire") for wandering. The word comes from German, in which wandern means "to wander," and Lust means "desire."
With this call, we encourage you, local artists to submit to our showcase of your own expressions of wanderlust. From painting to multimedia, we are looking to find some of pictures of escapism, windows into the soul of travel, and the experience of moving through a new place, real or imagined.
