A juror will determine which works will receive awards and will be exhibited. (Some pieces will not be displayed.) Artworks submitted for the competition, including those not accepted for exhibition, may not be removed from the museum until the exhibit closes. If you plan to enter the artwork in a future competition, please take photos of artwork before they are brought to our museum.
