A Call for Art and Inventions

“It’s far too ugly for me to die here!“ (-noted industrial designer Michael Graves when asked about hospitals). The ugliness that prompted Graves’ outburst included the devices he came across because of his new disability. The Opulent Mobility exhibit is an opportunity to change that. Wheelchairs, walkers, prosthetics, crutches and other assistive technology devices are part of our lives. But in the grand scheme of design innovations, they’ve been left in the dust. There are hundreds of thousands of designs for glasses, chairs, and tech of every other kind. Now’s your chance to help change the conversation about assistive technology of the future.

ELIGIBILITY: All artists and inventors are eligible to submit their ideas, art and inventions. Please submit your art, designs and inventions dealing with mobility, disability and accessibility. While we accept all mediums,2-D materials are the most economical to ship for submissions from across the country or from overseas. To that end, we will happily accept photographs of sculptures, installations, working drawings or prototypes.

BUDGET: There is no budget for submittors. No fees are required for submissions and any and all sales inquiries will be forwarded to the individual artists/inventors.

DEADLINE:  June 30th, 2015 5:00 PM PST

QUESTIONS: A. Laura Brody, curator and creator of Opulent Mobility, by email at or by phone at (818) 279-4118
