The week-long exhibit will likely take place around the last week of July or the beginning of August. So we ask that you fill out your entry form now and drop off your artwork starting anytime AFTER July 25th, 2020. The exhibit will take place the week of August 8th through 15th. More details will be announced soon, but the time to create is NOW! All we need to know is who plans to be present! Fill out our short 5 question form below if you intend to participate.
When you drop your artwork at the museum, we will have you make your own handwritten label with Artist name, title, etc.
