The event is open to artists (ages 18+) from all 50 states and U.S. territories and judged for a variety of prizes and possible purchase by the Museum. This year’s exhibition will be judged by Kevin Umaña, co-founder of The Ekru Project, a Kansas City-based artist-run gallery focused on contemporary, emerging, and historically excluded artists. Approximately $20,000 in cash awards are available; top awards are $3,000, $2,000, and $1,500 cash. Additional cash awards are generously provided by the Watercolor USA Honor Society.
