The Tesla Project is a one-day extravaganza celebrating the genius of Nikola Tesla. 2010 was our first year and we had over 30 participating artists, a line-up of bands, a Tesla Roadster, computer-enrichment activities for children, a film, a Tesla coil demo and how-to presentation, plus the performance based band ArcAttack. This year we’re planning for an equally electric event but plan on having the artwork up for two weekends, including a small reception on the July 2.
We are currently seeking submissions for a juried art show with a Nikola Tesla theme. All works of art will be eligible, including collage, mixed media, 3-D, photo, poetry, film, et al.
