Art Contest

“A Day in the Park”

The theme for the 2020 juried art contest is “A Day in the Park – Celebrating 125 years of Mackinac Island State Park.”  For this special anniversary exhibition we encourage artists working in all media to share with us their artistic visions of Mackinac Island State Park. Subjects may be historic buildings, dramatic limestone formations, tranquil vistas, forested trails, water views, or whatever subject best captures the artist’s vision of Michigan’s first State Park.

Winners will be announced at a special ceremony at The Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum on June 17, 2020. Juror for the contest will be announced at a later date.
