Coral Springs Museum of Art Issues Call for Art Submission to New 2020 Exhibit, “Inspired By”

Dec. 11, 2019 – The Coral Springs Museum of Art (2855A Coral Springs Dr., Coral Springs, FL 33065) is calling on regional artists to submit pieces for an exhibit unlike any other. From February 6 to March 7, 2020, the museum will host a juried exhibit of interpretive art with the theme of personal inspiration.

“This exhibit is exciting as it is an open theme that asks artist to share what inspires their work,” said Julia Andrews, Executive Director of the Coral Springs Museum of Art. “We want to know what exactly inspires artists and showcase how that source of inspiration translates into unique pieces of art across multiple media.”

Artists are encouraged to submit up to two pieces of work for inclusion in this exhibition. The works will be judged by “Museum Choice” and “People’s Choice” with different recognition opportunities offered depending on category. The Museum Choice recipient will receive a solo show opportunity in the Kuhn Gallery at the Museum, and the People’s Choice recipient will receive promotion on the Museum’s social media channels; both recipients will receive a family-level membership to the Museum. A complementary Artist Reception will be hosted at the Museum on Wednesday, February 6, 2020 at 6:00 p.m., giving the community a chance to interact with the artists and the exhibit.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for artists to receive exposure in our gallery, and we are pleased to be able to bring great art to the local community,” said Andrews.

Artists may enter pieces electronically by email to museuminfo@coralsprings.org, or in person for “same day” selection. The deadline for electronic consideration is Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at 5 p.m. with a notification deadline of Saturday, January 25, 2020. For drop off submission, the consideration deadline is Saturday, February 1, 2020 between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. As drop off pieces will go through a same day selection process, artists are required to return to the Museum in person at 3 p.m. on the day of submission to confirm acceptance and pick up unselected work. A $40 non-refundable jury fee will cover jury consideration, display within Coral Springs Museum of Art, the complimentary artist reception, and potential for award recognition.
