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 Guidelines:
• 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

• Please notify Anne Dugan that you wish to participate by August 1st
• Finished work is due to the DAI offices by September 9

Please include the following:
• Name/Address/Phone/Email
• Character that inspired the work
