CALL FOR ARTISTS: Proto Pulp at Art & Invention


Art and Invention invites you to apply to the 2nd annual children's book show, "Proto Pulp Classic Books of the Future". This show is open to all children's book artists and will take place at Art & Invention in East Nashville September 18 thru October 17. We will be accepting up to 12 artists to participate this year." Proto Pulp" came about when a group of artists decided it was time to bring their book ideas to completion, so they set a date and "Proto Pulp" was born. The show had such a great response that it is now a yearly event.
The vision of "Proto Pulp" is to let the artist express the full spectrum of their ideas by creating not only a finished book but also merchandise that directly relates to it. Last year artists made soft sculpture, prints, posters, stickers, pillows and journals that all complimented their books, as well as proto types of future books.
In it's 10th year the Art & Invention Gallery is an integral part of the East Nashville community, focusing on inventiveness in fine art, craft and furniture.
