Entries Due: Monday, July 15, 2019

After years of successfully hosting juried art competitions for photographers and landscape artists of the Mid-Atlantic Region, The Biggs Museum is proud to introduce a new juried competition and exhibition concept of art forms featuring the human and animal figures. This exhibition will present art from all visual art media including, but not limited to: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, craft, fiber, installation and video. The juried competition will select the top 50 – 60 works that most successfully interpret, evoke or respond to the body.

The physical exhibition will be accompanied by an online exhibition of the winning objects, an opening reception, juror talk, public programming and gallery sales of the submitted works.


A Best-In-Show Purchase Prize of $1500 will be awarded at the opening reception. The purchased object will become part of the Biggs Museum’s permanent collection.
