All Michigan artists, 18 years and older, are invited to submit up to two artwork entries for the chance to show in the Muskegon Museum of Art’s juried 88th Regional Exhibition. Entries must be submitted at www.callforentry.org and are due by March 19, 2017. Over $5,000 in cash prizes and purchase awards will be distributed to artists this year.
Entries of two-and three dimensional works created over the past two years by professional and amateur artists are eligible. For the first time in the history of the museum’s long-running Regional Exhibition, entry registration will be done by an internet submission system. Jurying will be done from digital images of the artwork. Register entries at www.callforentry.org (Café website). Search keyword “Muskegon” to find the show. Free Café registration is required for entry. Fees to register for the MMA’s Regional are $35 for up to two entries or $20 for MMA members.
Artists will be notified of the jury results via e-mail. Only artworks accepted by the juror will need to be delivered to the MMA. Artwork delivery days are April 21, 22, and 23, 2016.
This year’s juror is Tom Lundberg, a professor of art at Colorado State University. He coordinates fiber programs and teaches weaving and surface design courses. Lundberg has lectured and taught widely. His work has been seen in solo, group, and invitational exhibitions around the world and has appeared in many publications.
The Regional opens on May 12 and will fill two large galleries at the museum through August 3, 2016. The Muskegon Museum of Art’s juried Regional Exhibition was one of the first regional art shows established in Michigan and holds a respected position among the state’s regional art exhibitions. A long list of recognized Michigan artists has exhibited in the MMA’s Regional Exhibition, at the beginning and throughout their careers.
