In concurrence with the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, Asbury University has created an opportunity for visual artists to celebrate the horse. The Horse: A Cultural Exhibit, which will run Sept. 20 through Nov. 6, will contain artwork featuring elements related to the horse: the land, the games and the people who have known and loved horses. Interpretations might vary from cultural symbolism to physical attributes; from the horse's storied history to its contribution to agricultural pursuits and uses in competition and transportation. Call for entries and prospectus may be found at Asbury.edu/art.
