CALL for ENTRIES: All Things Salmon

2017 July 6

Learn more about the All Things Salmon exhibit from the Coos Art Museum!FOOD fight

Tuna & salmon are sometimes a person’s first introduction to food politics.  The “dolphin safe” label has been appearing on cans of tuna since the 1990s, helping consumers influence industry-wide changes in fishing methods. And, the wild vs. farmed salmon arguments continues to be hotly debated by nutritionists, chefs, foodies & environmentalists.  Contaminants vs. nutrition, sustainability vs. over-fishing or Atlantic vs. Pacific.  If you’re looking for a food fight, there’s always one to be had.  This next Call is all about salmon –no arguing required.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from Coos Art Museum (Coos Bay, OR) for All Things Salmon.  I always appreciate a museum show, but with $20 entry & 30% commission, this is a Call not to miss.  It is open to some artisan crafts, and for the record, I have never run across this curatorial theme…
