Principality of the Mists: Arts and Sciences
Mists A&S Competition/Display Schedule 2020
A/S Principality of the Mist Silver Muse competition “Arts and Science though the Ages”
Find your inner Muse, Early or Late! This year’s Mists A&S Silver Muse Competitions are moving through time, and expertise.
Each Mists event will have two competitions: One early period, one later period.
This will allow Artisans to grow a body of work that shows progression through both historical time, and their expertise growing over the years.
All Artists, Bards, Calligraphers, … , Natural Scientists, Poets, Rubricators, Singers, Troubadors (etc) are invited to pursue the arts by creating displays of their work and teaching and discussing the work, whether it is a material object, an intellectual one, or a story of history.
