This 59th biennial exhibition continues a long tradition of exhibiting the best of the upper Midwest’s artistic contributions, dating back to 1919, and artists are invited to submit entries. Submissions will be accepted from now until Sept. 1.
Any artist from Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Michigan, and Ontario, Canada is eligible to send in entries to participate in this exciting exhibition.
Works will be hung in the Duluth Art Institute’s John Steffl Gallery from Dec. 6 to Feb. 10.

Honorable mentions will also be honored at the reception.
This year’s juror is Ben Heywood, the executive director of The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, one of the largest visual art spaces in the Midwest that promotes and hosts some of the most innovative emerging artists and visual arts projects.
