Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235


Artists at all career levels from emerging to established professional, 18 years of age or older, and residing in Door, Kewaunee, Brown, Oconto, Manitowoc or Sheboygan counties, are invited to enter 2-dimensional work.

Entry Fee

Artists may enter up to two (2) works. A $25.00 non-refundable entry fee is required for each artist. 

To Entrants

A juried exhibition is by nature a competitive event. Artists are selected through a day-long process of careful deliberation among the panel of jurors; the jury panel changes every year. What they select for inclusion is what the panel feels is the strongest work. You may or may not be selected for inclusion in this exhibit and you may or may not agree with the jurors’ results. The Miller Art Museum provides this opportunity for artists to have a venue for exhibition, and these are the rules. Museum staff and volunteers appreciate the good sportsmanship of participating artists and those not included in the exhibition.
