Great Plains Art Museum Extends Deadline For Juried Exhibition Focusing On Contemporary Native American Art

The Great Plains Art Museum has extended the submission deadline for the Contemporary Indigeneity: The New Art of the Great Plains juried exhibition. Applications postmarked or submitted via Slideroom by Sunday, March 2, 2014 will be considered.

The museum is looking for artwork from individuals whose work expresses the texture of Native American life in the Great Plains today. Works will be selected by jury for inclusion in the show, which will open summer 2014. More than $5,000 in prizes will be awarded by juror Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, an internationally known artist, curator, lecturer, printmaker and professor. Selected artists may also be considered for Great Plains Art Museum and solo exhibitions.

This exhibition strives for a broad-ranging exploration which conveys the spectrum of contemporary visual art and fine craft in the Great Plains region, with a special emphasis on Native American culture.

A map of the Great Plains region as well as a prospectus of the exhibition can be accessed at www.unl.edu/plains/about/map.shtml and www.unl.edu/plains/gallery/juriedexhibition.shtml. Eligible works should express some element of North American Indigenous Culture and have a contemporary or historical significance and placement within the Great Plains of North America.
