Deadline approaching for Community Art Exhibition

The Dakota County Public Art Citizen Advisory Committee is seeking original works of art for its fifth Community Art Exhibition. The deadline for submitting artwork is Nov. 9.
 
Artists can depict their favorite building in Dakota County, a building they see every day, or one that is special to them. They can envision it from any perspective, unusual angle or interpretation as long as it fits with the themes "New Perspectives of Historic Places in Dakota County" or "Your Favorite Building in Dakota County."
 
Artists 8 years old and older living in Dakota County are invited to submit original two-dimensional art that meets the committee's criteria outlined online. One entry per person per theme is allowed. 
 
The mission of the Dakota County Public Art Citizen Advisory Committee is to showcase and celebrate local talent while making local art more accessible to residents. This exhibition is the fifth open exhibition of work by local artists sponsored by the committee and its 20th overall. The committee will review submissions and make a recommendation to the Dakota County Board of Commissioners, which will make the final decision on which artwork is exhibited.

The six-month exhibit will be installed in November in various Dakota County buildings.
 
For a complete list of criteria that submissions must meet, visit www.dakotacounty.us and search art exhibit. To learn more, contact Jean Erickson at 651-438-4286 or jean.erickson@co.dakota.mn.us.
