Craft Minneapolis Presents The Mill City Art Show: Everybody Worships Something. A Juried Exhibition at Public Functionary.

The inaugural Mill City Art Show is a juried exhibition produced by Craft Northeast. The theme for the 2018 show is borrowed from a David Foster Wallace quote, “Everybody worships.” The goal is to inspire conversations that explore what we all as people, both as individuals and members of our various communities, choose to worship. You can choose to celebrate positive things that you, or many of us, choose to worship, or you can choose to draw attention to philosophies, lifestyles or dogmas that are more detrimental than empowering. We only ask that your art is respectful. Works that promote hate will not be accepted. 

Additionally, we hope that the Mill City Art Show connects artists to a wider range of patrons and buyers, supports artists professionally by selling their artwork, and further help the Twin Cities arts community flourish even more. 

The 2018 jurors for the Mill City Art Show are Mike Bishop (Co-Director/Producer of Public Functionary), Jack Becker (founder and Director of Consulting and Creative Services at Forecast Public Art), Dr. Michelle Westmark Wingard (Professor of Art and the Gallery Director of Bethel University’s two exhibition spaces), and Dr. Brenda Kayzar (Collaborative Strategist and Owner of Urbane DrK Consulting). The jury process will be one online round only. The application materials must be submitted online per the submission guidelines and instructions by July 30th, 2018. Artists will be notified of acceptance by August 15th, 2018 and will need to deliver their artwork to Public Functionary by Tuesday September 11th.
