North of the 45th 2020
The North of the 45th Parallel exhibition began in 2008 as a way to showcase the diversity of artistic talent in the upper Midwest region. Since then hundreds of artists from Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin have exhibited artwork in a range of media from painting to performance. Each year, a different juror is involved in the painstaking process of reviewing submissions to create a cohesive exhibition that represents both rural and urban artists from a wide range of backgrounds, training, and approaches to creative practice.
Jurors’ Choice: Madison Hager, Lane Table One, 2018
Audience Choice: Tiffany Lange, She Said, 2019
Open to residents of Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin living north of the 45th parallel + 1 degree of this area. The idea is to represent artists residing in the Upper Midwest region. Work in all media is welcome. Work previously exhibited at the museum is not eligible.
Enjoy a session of chat with the N45 2020 Jurors, Brad Killam & Michelle Grabner.
