Call for Entry - Seeing Each Other: Portraits in Time and Place

The Northern Illinois University Art Museum is seeking visual art interpretations on the theme of "portraiture", from realistic likenesses (including an artist’s self-portrait) to more conceptual interpretations and portrayals of an individual or group. Entries will be evaluated on professionalism of execution, inventiveness of concept and capture of subject’s uniqueness.

Deadline for all entries: Materials must be postmarked by Wednesday, June 12, 2024. Online submissions may be loaded until 11:59 p.m. on June 12.

Works will be selected by invitation and from a national call for entry by NIU Art Museum staff members and the museum’s Exhibition Advisory Committee.
