Call for Prairie Artists

Tina Didreckson - Stevens County Historical Society & Museum

116 W 6th Street, Morris , MN 56267, 320-589-1719

Deadline: April 23

We have opened the Call for Artists for our 4th Annual Horizontal Grandeur.

Inspired by an essay of the same name by Minnesota poet Bill Holm (1943-2009), this fine art exhibition has grown each and every year. Last year we had 93 entries from 11 prairie states for the 50 exhibit spaces in our historic national award winning space. Because of the success, the call has opened up earlier this year. January 15th - April, 23rd, 2010 has been set as the open submission time. To print out a hardcopy of our call brochure, and mail in the entries with a check or money order, you can download a pdf file at this link:
