German Expressionism was an artistic movement that used exaggerated styles to express powerful emotional states. Express yourself by making original artwork in any media that pays homage to this dramatic style! Your work must reference visual element of both of the works shown here:
Emile Nolde, Excited People, 1913, oil on canvas.
Robert Wiene, Genuine, 1920, film.
Submit your artwork, along with your name, age category and contact information to any RPL location. Limit one entry per person. Submission grants approval to have your work photographed and reproduced for RPL or Dunlop purposes.
All submissions will be displayed at Central Library, and a winner will be selected in each of the following age categories:
• Children: 13 and under
• Young Adult: 14-18
• Adult: 19+
Need ideas to get started? Attend The Art of German Expressionism workshop on Sunday, September 18, from 1:00 to 3:00pm at Central Library, or watch the German Expressionism film series at RPL Film Theatre, screening the first Thursday of each month through September 2016.
