In May 2017, the Oak Park Art League will be presenting a Midwest Juried Exhibition that pays tribute to architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his iconic “Prairie” style, inspired by the natural environment and the American Midwest. The exhibition “Elevating Nature” is being presented in recognition of the architect’s 150th birthday, with exhibit dates coinciding with other Wright events that draw visitors from around the world to Oak Park.
Submission for this exhibition is open to artists from Midwest states including, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Artists are invited to submit 2D and 3D work of any media that references nature and/or the Midwestern landscape. Jurors Brian Ritchard and Brent Fogt will select works that embody the progressive spirit of Wright and the essence of the American Midwest. Over $2,000 in cash prizes for Best of Show and Juror Awards will be presented in two categories:
- Most innovative interpretation of the Midwestern landscape
- Best use or representation of natural materials or nature elements
