Since 1985, the ArtsWorcester Biennial has exhibited the region’s best visual art, with an extraordinary range of works by leading and emerging artists. The juror of this year’s Biennial is Samantha Cataldo, Contemporary Arts Curator at the Currier Museum of Art. Teens are invited to come view the selected artworks that were chosen out of a pool of over three hundred submissions.
In addition to a $1,000 cash prize, this year’s winner of the Sally R. Bishop Prize for Best In Show will have an installation in the galleries at the Worcester Art Museum in the 2017-18 season, with work selected by one staff member from the museum and the Executive Director of ArtsWorcester in concert with the artist. Prize winners will be announced at the opening, May 5 (free and open to all).
No RSVP—just show up! Ask your teacher if you can get extra credit!
