THEME

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum is excited to announce its first annual artists call for its brand-new winter exhibition gallery series. This year’s theme is “Here and Now,” which asks artists to take stock of their life and present the findings through exhibition. The past few years have been tumultuous, how has that affected you? What will the future hold? That’s what we’d like you to tell us. With this in mind, all submitted art must have been made in 2021- forward.

With this being our first open-winter-call, we’d like to introduce new artists to this region, feature local artists, and exhibit everyone, from more established to emerging artists, in tandem. All accepted art will be eligible to win an award
