CALL FOR WORKS
In honor of Shakespeare’s First Folio visit to Duluth, the Duluth Art Institute is announcing an open call for submissions to a portrait exhibit featuring artists’ imaginative renderings of famous characters from Shakespeare’s plays. We’re accepting 2D as well as 3D work but space is limited so 2D work is encouraged.
• Work should represent a character from a Shakespeare play but the word ‘represent’ can be taken very loosely. Be as creative as the Bard himself when creating your work! Click here for character examples.
• Any form, style, or medium of art is acceptable.
• Work cannot exceed 6’ in any direction.
• All hung work must not exceed 40lbs, and must be READY TO HANG.
• All freestanding works must support their weight and may not be attached to the floor.
• Work may be for sale (but is not required). The Duluth Art Institute takes a 40% commission on all gallery sales so please set price accordingly
