who can submit art?
A Wisconsin artist of any age with any disability.
What are the artwork requirements
Since this year’s event will be virtual, we are asking artists to submit one .jpg image of each artowrk they wish to submit to the event. Each artist may submit up to two works of art.
Eligible mediums include 2D or 3D in ceramics, mixed media, acrylic, oil and watercolor paintings, drawing, prints, photography and digital media, collage, sculpture and fiber arts, and textiles. Video entries must be under 4 minutes long.
What is an artist statement?
An artist statement describes what you want people to know about you and your art. It can include biographical information, information about what inspires you to make art generally or information about a specific piece or pieces. An artist statement is required for all participants – a support person may assist in completing artist statement.
What Happens after I submit my application?
A panel of jurors will deliberate which 12 pieces will be awarded cash prizes. On October 8th, a live stream gala and fundraiser will feature all artwork submitted to the event, and will announce which of the 12 pieces won this year's competition. There will also be a “People’s Choice” award determined by votes from the audience. The People's Choice award will receive a cash prize (TBD) and will be featured on the cover of the calendar.
Is there a cost to register for the live stream event?
No. This year’s event is free to attend! All donations made during the live stream will go toward our goal of raising $3,000 so that Access to Independence may continue to grow this unique fundraiser!
The registration form to attend the event will appear on our website in mid August!
This is a really different process from years past - Why the change?
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our Board of Directors and management team have decided that a virtual format would be the safest way to host this year’s fundraising event.
