EXHIBTIONS DATES: June 19 - August 7, 2020


Open to all residents of Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin living north of the 45th parallel. There is wiggle room for people within 1 degree of this area, but the idea is to represent artists living in the upper Midwest region. Work in all media is welcome and there are no size limitations. Work previously exhibited at the museum is not eligible.


All entries must be submitted by creating an account at devos.slideroom.com. There is a $20 fee to submit up to five images; the jurors will select specific artworks for the exhibition based on these submissions.
*Accepted entries will need to be shipped or delivered to the museum ready to display. Shipped artwork will be returned at the museum’s expense.
*The Permanent Collection Acquisition award is dependent upon approval by museum committee.


Every artist in the exhibition will have an image of their work and an artist statement in the exhibition catalog.

Thank you to the Michigan Council for the Arts for generous programming support.
