Acceptable Media/Work
2-D and 3-D works will be considered for the exhibition. If selected, work must be delivered ready to hang or install. Please note that the Percolator is a 600 square foot space with eight foot ceilings.

The idea for this Percolator exhibition was borne from a discussion with the curator of Trees & Other Ramifications: Branches in Nature & Culture. The Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas will be showing Trees & Other Ramifications: Branches in Nature & Culture concurrently.
