Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: February 26, 2022 – The Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art is now accepting entries for our upcoming  ‘Salon des Refusés’ juried exhibition. We are excited to have this exhibit to bring artists from coast to coast to the heart of America.

Artists may enter only one work of art that MUST have been entered in a juried exhibit or competition, (within the last two years), and been rejected!

The show will be displayed “Salon-Style”. In other words, hundreds of works will hang from floor to ceiling! This will allow us to accept nearly all works entered. Our goal is to accept everything entered, however, the museum will reserve the right to reject works for whatever reason, i.e., pornographic, etc.

Accepted works will be on exhibit at the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art from April 1 – July 2, 2022.

This competition is open to all artists 18 years of age and older residing in the US. We want to see everything in any medium, sculpture included! Work entered may not exceed 36″ in any direction, with the exception of sculptures not requiring wall space.

This exhibit will be judged by the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art’s Executive Director, David Hummer.

Cash Prizes for Best of Show, 2nd, and 3rd Place, with at least 3 Honorable Mentions.
