'PERSEUS@ART: Images of the Sea'

The Contest

The PERSEUS Management Office, together with the Careers Office of the Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) decided to hold an Art Competition in order to introduce the dimension of Art in the Science world and vice versa. A peculiar "marriage" between science and art, where the inspiration and captured feelings will walk alongside towards the exploration of our seas.

The deadline for project submissions was set to be 16 December 2013. Thereafter, an Evaluation Committee representing both ASFA and PERSEUS selected the three winning projects, which will awarded a trip on one of the PERSEUS oceanographic cruises and three artworks awarded distinctions.
