WAYSIDES
Call for entries
John Michael Kohler Arts Center
 
Natural wonders, scenic overlooks, roadside attractions, iron hand pumps that gush cold water, sweetcorn stands at the height of summer, fiberglass cows, Wisconsin waysides are more than just places of respite for weary travelers. Nixes of memory and regional identity, they are indicators that we are home, or almost there.
 
Based on the Wisconsin term for roadside rest stops familiar to travelers, WAYSIDES celebrates the history and natural landscape of our state and is meant to inspire works that contain feelings of nostalgia, personal memories, and cultural references.
 
This call invites all artists– professional or avocational– to submit an original, two- or three-dimensional work inspired, literally or metaphorically, by the idea of Wisconsin waysides. As part of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center’s upcoming series, ON WISCONSIN, this exhibition is open to all those who call Wisconsin “home.” 
 
Total dimensions of the work may not exceed 12 x 12 x 12 inches.
 
Entry deadline: January 30, 2016                 
Exhibition dates: April 3–October 2, 2016
