To celebrate James Rosenquist’s 80th birthday, Plains Art Museum invites artists to submit images of work to be displayed in an exhibition titled Happy Birthday, James Rosenquist! Works in all media will be considered that are inspired by or in the spirit of this major 20th/21st century artist, whose roots run deep in North Dakota and Minnesota. Submissions will be reviewed by museum staff, and the selected works will be featured in a curated show in the museum’s Atrium from February to May 2014.

Please submit images of work by December 1, 2013. Artists are invited to submit already made works or they may create new pieces. Submissions may be large, but must remain smaller than 6 x 6 feet in size. Email submissions to Becky Dunham, museum curator, at bdunham@plainsart.org and include the following information about the work in the email: title, medium, dimensions, and date of creation.
