Call For Artists! Minneapolis Convention Center Exhibit

call for artists

Call for Artists! Art Force requests submissions of original two-dimensional artwork for our SmartArt Rotating Art Program.

This program requires that the submitting artist agree to commit artwork to the program for a minimum of twelve months. The artwork can then be selected by the client as part of an art subscription. The proceeds of the monthly art subscription fee are divided evenly between the artist and Art Force. The artwork is also available for sale to Art Force clients during the “loan” period. Artists who are not selected may be considered for future opportunities at the Convention Center or other locations.

For this exhibit, the program is accepting work only by those who live and/or work in the City of Minneapolis.

The large scale of the Convention Center space requires work of a similarly large scale. We are looking for work that is 40” x 60” or larger. The space will accommodate square and horizontal formats.

The goal of the exhibit is to showcase the varied visual art talent created by local artists.

Work that depicts and highlights the city is of interest

Consideration will be given to artists

  • with a cultural or geographic perspective that is unique or appropriate to Minneapolis.
  • who could be considered emerging in their development
