  • Composition must consist of 60% blue hues.

  • Each artist may submit one (1) single art entry for a single non-refundable fee of $20.

  • Each artist is limited to a total of five (5) single art entries at $20 each for a total non-refundable entry fee of $100. (No series, set of 2 / diptychs or set of 3 / triptychs.)

Two artists will receive a $200 cash prize from the People’s Choice contest and will be awarded at the close of the exhibit on April 14, 2020. (People’s Choice award is a fundraiser for the Besser Museum and is based on popular vote and not entirely on the artistic merit of the artwork.)

Our mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit authentic articles and artifacts of art, history, and science to 

inspire curiosity, foster community pride, and cultivate personal legacy.
