The Rockford Midwestern Biennial @ Rockford Art Museum
Jun 8 @ 10:00 am – Sep 30 @ 5:00 pm

The 2018 Rockford Midwestern is the 75th presentation of Rockford Art Museum’s juried exhibition, which began in 1913 as an annual showcase of local artists, then expanded eligibility and was known as the Stateline Vicinity Show through 1998. Now a biennial show that surveys new work by contemporary artists across the Midwest, the competition is open to original artwork in any medium created since the last biennial by residents of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, or Wisconsin. Gallerist Aron Packer serves as this year’s juror. The last biennial featured 85 works by 78 artists selected from more than 600 submissions; painter Jeanne Ludeke received the 2016 Dean Alan Olson Purchase Award. Concurrent exhibits include the third annual Art in Bloom, a three-day event showcasing interpretive installations of floral and other organic material by local designers, inspired by select artwork juried into the feature exhibition.

Open daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Thursdays from 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
