Modular Art Pods, the open source, collaborative art tunnel, is coming to OZ Arts on June 21 through 25 with a special Thursday Night Things event June 23 at 6 p.m.
The podsters are building incredible things, and I can’t wait for you to experience the 60 miniature environments!
If you like what we’re doing, there’s a way you can help. OZ is seeking pod sponsorships — $100 for small pods and $200 for large pods — to help defray the costs of artist supplies, pod production, and administration. Sponsors will have their names featured on the signage at the show as well as receive free tickets. If you’re unable to contribute, you can also help us by sharing this message on social media. See the details below and donate here. Thank you for your consideration.
The pod artists have been busy designing and constructing their pods! Check out a few progress pics below.
Modular Art Pods is an art tunnel that attendees crawl through. It takes place at OZ Arts Nashville from June 21-25, 2016.

Andee Rudloff’s answer to “I Propose To Fill This Pod With…”
The call for participants for Modular Art Pods at OZ Arts Nashville (June 21-25, 2016) is long closed, but there’s still a way to get your art in the show.
Jason Brown is making his pod out of postcard-sized proposals for what he should put in his pod. Anyone can mail in a postcard proposal, including you. The art can be words, drawings, paintings, photographs, origami … ANYTHING that fits on a postcard. All you need to do is finish this sentence with your work: “I propose to fill this pod with…”
Jason has put on several successful mail art shows in the past, including Letter to Me and Reinvention: A Mail Art Show.
The deadline is May 1st, 2016. Learn more and submit at the project website.
