Open Call to Visual Artists Living or Working in Wisconsin

June 25, 2021—The Miller Art Museum in downtown Sturgeon Bay is now accepting submissions to the 46th Juried Annual, an exhibition highlighting contemporary work from the State’s visual artists.

The exhibition is open to artists at all career levels and invites a range of media and artistic practices from traditional to abstract. Artists over the age of 18 who live or work in Wisconsin are eligible to apply. Artists can register and submit work via the ArtCall platform through the Museum’s website. Artists may enter up to two (2) original works for a $30 non-refundable entry fee.

This year marks a new direction for the exhibition, a longstanding pillar of the Museum’s exhibition program, with the broadening of the geographic scope from a 6-County radius to all 72 counties throughout the state.

“By broadening the reach of eligibility, we’re inviting new visual artists to the Northeast Wisconsin region specifically and encouraging diversity in the competition, while also bringing awareness statewide to the talent of the tremendous creative community that is Door County,” says Helen del Guidice, curator of exhibitions and collections.
