The DeVos Art Museum at Northern Michigan University is holding a free juried art competition that will give Upper Peninsula artists the opportunity to have their work displayed on a banner outside the museum building. Artists will also receive a prize of $250 if selected.
Artists must live and work in the Upper Peninsula and be age 18 or older to apply. They can submit their work through this link, which can also be found on the Devos Art Museum website or Facebook and Instagram pages. Artists must submit their work by Oct. 19. Winners will be selected by Oct. 26 and will have their work displayed from Nov. 15 to March 1.
The jurors for the competition are Rachel Fugate, the collection curator at the Devos Art Museum; Whitney Warstler, the founder of The Summer Seasons Gallery in Houghton; and Melissa Matuscak Alan, who was formerly the director and curator of the DeVos Art Museum and is now the community and donor engagement associate at the Community Foundation of Marquette County.
