Call for Entry - Great (juried all-media exhibition)

​Crooked Tree Arts Center, in Petoskey, Michigan, is now accepting submissions for the exhibition Great

The Great Lakes that surround Michigan’s peninsulas are powerful, life-sustaining resources. Their vastness, connectedness, and clarity suggest a physical manifestation of greatness. This exhibition asks Great Lakes-area artists to share original works of art that reflect on the theme “Great.” Accepted works will demonstrate a meaningful connection or response to the Great Lakes. Artists are encouraged to consider the theme broadly and creatively.

Possible approaches to the theme include:

  • Responses to the Great Lakes
  • Environmental concerns related to the Great lakes
  • Cultural connections to the Great Lakes
  • Interpretations of the concept “Great” or “Greatness”
  • Personal experiences with the Great lakes
  • Depictions of the Great Lakes

All media are eligible for entry. This call is open to artists working in the Great Lakes Region: Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. 



This opportunity is open to United States residents, 18 years and older, who reside in the following states: Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Works must be original works of art. All media are eligible.
