14th Annual 12x12 Community Art Exhibit: Seasons – March & April 2018

Exhibit Opens Friday, March 2, 2018

Each year the City Museum hosts a unique community art exhibit in which artists of all ages are encouraged to create works within the parameters of a square or a cube, measuring 12" x 12" (by 12") including the framing. This year we encouraged artists to create on the theme of “Seasons.”

Museum curator Jodi DeBruyne explains the choice for this year’s theme: “During each year’s exhibit, we offer the opportunity for artists and visitors to recommend future 12x12 themes and ‘Seasons’ has been mentioned a few times over the years. The theme lends itself to all artistic mediums and has a variety of meanings -- seasons of the year, seasons, of life, the seasonings of cooking, TV series seasons, sports seasons -- that offer an abundance of creative opportunities for Juneau’s artists.”

Submissions will be accepted Tuesday, February 20th through Saturday, February 24th, 2018, from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Each submission must be accompanied by an entry form and entry fee of $12.12. The 2018 entry form is linked below.

The 12x12 exhibit will open with a First Friday Reception on March 2, 2018, and run through Saturday, April 21st, 2018.
