Enter your art into a MAC exhibit

Jan 23, 2021

MARION — The Marion Art Center is accepting entries for its upcoming exhibit featuring work by local high school students as part of the center’s Young Artist Program. Any student of high school age may submit up to five pieces for consideration. Students may submit work made in school, but the MAC encourages students to make new work -- and priority will be given to those works -- responding to the following theme: Life in 2021: What Comes Next?

“Everyone has experienced challenges throughout the past year, some more so than others,” read a press release from the MAC.  

The center recommends answering questions like: What comes next? What does your life look like after the pandemic is behind us? Are there moments you wish to reflect on? What experiences - which can be simple but meaningful - are you eager to enjoy again? What do you look forward to when you think of your daily life in the relatively near, pandemic-free future?

The MAC exhibition committee will review all works and select at least one piece from each applicant.

All submissions are due no later than Monday, February 15. 

To apply, students should email their full name, email address, phone number, age, grade and submission to info@marionartcenter.org with “High School Art Show” in the subject line. Alternatively, students may upload all documents through an online form found at marionartcenter.org/on-exhibit. Students may include up to five high-quality jpg images labeled in the following format:  LastFirst01_Title (ex: SmithJohn03_HarborView). The MAC is also accepting Short bios and brief artist statements of no more than a few paragraphs.
