NAU Art Museum’s Painting in the World Juried Exhibition

The Northern Arizona University (NAU) Art Museum is currently accepting artwork for the “Painting in the World: Reflections on Politics, Violence, and Reconciliation” juried exhibition competition.

In September 2014, the Northern Arizona University (NAU) Art Museum will produce this juried exhibition of paintings created around inter-woven themes of politics, violence and reconciliation.

Three (3) awards with a total fund of $1600 are available for the best paintings.

Eligible to submit are all US and international artists 18 years of age and older.

The NAU Art Museum believes that the global community faces a turning point today in which economic, environmental, and ethnic pressures threaten the integrity of whole societies. The Arab Spring, wars arising from religious extremism and, conversely, the efforts of many nations to maintain stable, consensual societies are among the themes they hope to address in this exhibition.

“Painting in the World: Reflections on Politics, Violence and Reconciliation” will be co-jurored by Dr. George V. Speer, Director of the NAU Art Museum and Dr. Eleanor Jones Harvey, Senior Curator, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.

Painting in the World Exhibition Entry Fee

A non-refundable entry fee of $35 entitles submission of up to three entries.
