On February 18, 2021, the Mars 2020 spacecraft – Perseverance – will land at Jezero Crater on the red planet. To celebrate this monumental event, the California Art Club will unveil on that day the online exhibition Mars: An Artistic Mission.

This exhibition will span fact, fiction and fantasy, as we encourage you to create works inspired by public domain images of Mars, as well as literature – including science fiction – about our neighboring planet.

Please submit images either focusing on Martian landscapes or taking inspiration from Mars. Artwork exploring outer space from a more imaginative or fantastical standpoint is also welcome. Get creative!

Please check your email for the link to our specially created exhibition resources page, where you can find reference materials and more information.

Paintings in oil, watercolor, pastel or acrylic.

Sculptures in permanent materials such as bronze, marble, terra cotta, fiberglass, or wood.
