Deadline: March 18, 2012 (ONLINE)

Centennial Juried Exhibition
Delaware Art Museum

Wilmington, Delaware
October 20, 2012 through January 13, 2013

The Delaware Art Museum is celebrating 100 years of supporting the visual arts in its community through its collections, exhibitions, and programs. To commemorate the Museum’s past annual exhibitions of painting and crafts—combined to form the Biennial in 1989 — a juried exhibition will be on view from October 20, 2012 through January 13, 2013. The exhibition will feature a variety of media—drawing, painting, sculpture, performance, video, and installation—and include artists living either within the State of Delaware or within 100 miles of the Museum. Guest-juried by John B. Ravenal, this centennial exhibition anticipates the next 100 years of contemporary art in Delaware.

The Centennial Juried Exhibition (“Exhibition”) is open to artists ages 18 and over currently residing either within the State of Delaware of within 100 miles of the Delaware Art Museum (“Museum”).

Artists are invited to submit up to three works of art created within the last ten years. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional work—including installations—in any medium that can be viewed by digital image is eligible. Performance, sound, and video art, and practices that engage technology are also eligible and must be submitted as MP3, MP4, or Flash files and YouTube and Vimeo embed codes. Work submitted must be available for exhibition.

Selected works of art will be displayed both within the Museum and outside in the Copeland Sculpture Garden. The artist is responsible for all material, production, and display costs related to the selected work(s) of art including matting, mounting, framing, hanging hardware, and any temporary platforms required for outdoor sculpture.
