Call for Artists: Juried ExhibitMarch 24, 2021
The National Museum of Wildlife Art is looking for professional artists currently residing in Wyoming, Idaho, or Montana to submit artwork for our Woven Together: Art and Arachnids exhibit. The Museum is looking for 2-D artwork or sculptural relief (i.e. collage, multimedia, fiber art, etc.) featuring spiders in ways that highlight their beauty and demonstrate their relevance to the ecosystem. Artworks informed/influenced by science as indicated in your artist statement will be given priority.
