The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is continuing its call for entries for their eighth annual 12x12 Community Art Installation, opening in March. This year’s theme is texture.
The 12x12 exhibit came about after the former Curator of Collections & Exhibits, Ellen Carrlee, heard about a program called “an inch of art” at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wis. in 2004. Thanks to that inspiration, the Juneau-Douglas City Museum has been having the 12x12 exhibit ever since.
“The goal of this exhibit is to encourage all levels of creativity to focus on two parameters: a fixed two dimensional or three-dimensional size, and a theme - texture,” says Director, Jane Lindsey. “Each year we are amazed and charmed by the creative expression that comes in the door.”
All entries must be 12”x12” including framing. 3-D artwork can be no greater than 12 inches in depth. Entries will be accepted Thursday, Feb. 23 through Saturday, Feb. 25. A completed entry form and $12.12 entry fee must accompany each submission. Multiple submissions per artist are allowed.
The 8th annual 12x12 exhibit will open on Friday, March 2 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. with an opening reception sponsored by the Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum. The exhibit runs through March 31.
Entry forms are available online at www.juneau.org/parkrec/museum and at the Museum’s front desk.
