What does it take to tell a story?  Storytelling is vital to making compelling images. Great feats of visual storytelling appear all around us; church windows, works by Norman Rockwell and the published sketchbooks of Leonardo Di Vinci. Visual storytelling tells a story. It uses the power of the visual image to ignite imaginations, evoke emotions and capture universal cultural truths and aspirations.
This exhibit is open to all media and the artists are challenged to narrate a story within their piece of art. What distinguishes Visual storytelling from other genres is its ability to narrate a story across diverse cultures, preserving it for future generations.
